    Can wild birds eat expired pellets?

    So, a few days ago, when I was taking the pellets out of the fridge I've realized that they had expired by 11 days. I was horrified that I hadnt noticed it before and fed it to my birds. Thankfully, they seem okay and they didn't get indigestion. I was gonna throw it away, but my mum told me...

    keep or sell?

    I bought these liquid vitamins to take with a seed diet just in case my gcc didn't like Laferber's pellets, but she does like them. What should I do with the Vitamins now? Would it be too dangerous to have my conure take vitamins with pellets and seed diet?
