    Where do you purchase Roudybush?

    I'm about out of food for my girl and need to buy some more. I bought some from Mysafebirdstore before but was considering just buying from the site itself. Anyone have any preferences? Thanks!

    Food to help budgie gain weight

    Luke lost some weight by not eating his food on his second round of antibiotics (which It was put in the food and is a bitter tasting medication). He was pretending to eat so I didn’t realize he wasn’t eating until I could physically feel his keel bone when I went to pick him up. He is no...

    Proper food/diet for Green Cheek Conures?

    What is the proper diet for a Green Cheek Conure? From my research, I have found that most people say that nutritional pellets are the way to go (Zupreem, Harrisons, etc.) due to supposedly having all of the vitamins, nutrients, minerals, etc. a bird needs. My grandmother has been raising and...

    Nuts.com? Anuts.com??

    I am trying to find the best place to find human grade nuts for my CAG. I’m mainly looking for walnuts, hazelnuts, and almonds. I found nuts.com and Anuts.com; I also think I found someplace called nuts wholesale (if someone could give me the correct name please :lol:) but if anyone could tell...

    Gluten Free seed mix or pellet?

    Hi all, My hubby has celiac, and because birds are such MESSY eaters :), we're trying to find a pellet and a seed mix (for out of cage training) that does NOT contain oats, wheat, barley, or rye. I'm having a really hard time! I know I can buy things separately and mix our own seed, and...

    Cockatiel too excited to eat, too hungry to hang out (desperate for help)

    My cockatiel's name is Starscream, she's 4 years old and I got her on September 13, 2019. She was originally a breeder's bird but the breeder didn't want her anymore so Star was sold to me as a pet. She was extremely hand shy and I trained her myself. She now loves coming out of her cage...

    Lovebird Diet

    Hi everyone, I’ve been doing some reading online about lovebird diets and apparently you are not supposed to feed them a lot of seeds. I’ve had my lovebird mango for less then a year and I occasionally give him veggies and fruits, I also give him pellets but he barely touches them. Do you guys...

    Dehydrated/Freeze Dried food

    Due to the fact that I'm not always at home, I would love to give the new birdy ( who is come home in a few weeks! Had to be pushed forward due to slow weaning :) ) some vegetables whilst I'm gone everyday (obviously not for very long though). Is it ok to offer dehydrated/freeze dried veggies...

    Best seed mix!

    Hey everyone! Im ordering Harrison’s Pellets for my 2 keets, but I don’t want them completely on pellets. Though seed mixes can be fatty, I’m not sure my parakeets are going to have a clean easy switch to pellets so I was wondering what a healthy, no artificial flavors or colors seed mix i can...

    Choosing a bird food!

    Hi, I need help choosing a bird food for my two budgies. They are currently on the seeds that petsmart had reccomneded me to, but I know that it isn't healthy. I am aware of the tops pellets, Harrison’s pellets, and Lafebers pellets, but it’s too expensive for my budget. In fact, the Harrison’s...

    Foods similar to Harrison's?

    My two cockatiels' favorite food is Harrison's extra fine, they love it and there's no wasted food. Unfortunately, it's a little difficult to get my hands on right now so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for foods with a similar texture? I've tried roudybush, they eat it but the...

    IRN would not eat inside his cage

    Hello everyone! I own a 3 month old IRN baby and I have to admit I spoiled him a lot. I got him right before the Corona thing started, so I was able to spend a lot of time with hime, maybe too much. He ended up eating and being weaned outside of the cage and usually only goes to his cage to...

    Hello, I have had a sweet baby GCC, Tiki for about a week and a few days now. He was such a sweet heart for all this time with only a few bites when he was curious and just feeling with his beak. For the last two days, however, he all the sudden gets an attitude and bites down hard on our...

    Conure eating all budgies food

    Hi everyone, I have a 5-year-old GCC (Koby) and just recently got a budgie (Helix) (that’s a whole other story). Koby (GCC) is on a pellet diet (with fresh veggies etc.) and he gets seed as a treat. However, Helix’s (budgie) diet is predominantly seed. They are getting along really well, except...
