    Expired pellets

    I have a bag of All Living Things (old Petsmart brand) Conure and Lovebird Diet fruit flavored pellets. I got them about 2 years ago when I was switching my GCC from seed to pellets and have continued to use them as treats since them. I gave her a few today and realized the bag said Best By: May...

    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...

    Confused after the vet visit

    I brought one of my budgies to the vet today because she had dirty feathers around the vent and I have been worried about her increasing weight. They did an x-ray on her and diagnosed her with a lipoma. They understandably prescribed a diet. The prescribed seed mix seems to have the same...

    So I have a female budgie who usually loves trying new foods. I left her at a friends house (they took good care of them) for a week, and when I got her back I have monitored her for the past 2 days. It seems like my girl has suddenly stopped eating pellets, or less, she does still eat...

    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?

    HELP! I need to switch my cockatiel to another pellet.

    My cockatiel's about a year old. She just laid 3 eggs, I believe she will lay more. (She has no mate, there is no dark places for her to be stimulated) I have seen her mating with a toy, and i thought it was just her hormones (She usually does that when she has her hormones). But when it was a...

    Pellet Problems

    Hi all! I’ve been having a very hard time converting my cockatiel to pellets. I’ve tried multiple (healthy) brands to find her favorite, and she 100% recognizes them as food, but she will only eat them if I sit with her and pretend to eat them too. And even then she only eats a few before...

    New Food

    Hi everyone! I just got my Budgie a new type of food and she is not interested in it whatsoever. I know it can take a while to adjust them to new food, but I was wondering if there were any ways to make it more interesting to her so she will want to eat it. I tried offering it as a treat so it...

    Pellet Question

    Hello all! I have recently begun converting my new cockatiel, Cricket, from seeds to pellets. I have found that he really likes the Zupreem Natural pellets, but the medium size (which is designed for cockatiels) is a little too big for him to eat comfortably and seems to be discouraging him...

    Can budgies eat cockatiel pellets?

    My budgie Sky has been on Harrison’s lifetime mash for awhile now and she seems to like it (or at least tolerate it) but lately she has taken to sneaking into our cockatiel’s cage and eating his pellets as well. Our cockatiel is currently on HARI’s Tropimix, we were wondering if it would be...
