Does anyone know of a dried or freeze dried wide variety blend of vegetables (preferably human grade or made for humans) that doesn't contain alliums (garlic, onion, etc) and is completely safe for birds?
Thank you so much. My birds don't like to eat fresh vegetables. I've bought them freeze dried vegetables for meant for animals, and put it in their food; they do eat that, but it does not provide a wide enough variety of different vegetables.

Here are a few of my favorite options! All of these are made for birds, but are human grade materials.

Dehydrated, Freeze Dried, Breads, Mashes, some baked, and more (AA Vendor): Avian Organics The Largest Selection of Organic Parrot and Bird Food Online Bird Bread, Bird Mashes, Cage Blends, Bird Treats

or

Things for Wings Canada's Online Bird Supply Store for Organic Parrot Food, Pet Bird Supplies, and More!


Dehydrated, a few baked things, some freeze dried: Christine's Chop Shop

Freeze Dried, including some treats: Texas Natural Freeze Dried Products



There's lots of options available these days!

Is it safe and ok to buy freeze dried vegetables, greens, sprouts, and fruit from "Star Sellers" on Etsy?

Star Sellers just means they have good reviews, ship on time, and answer messages quickly :)

I don't have any personal experience with any of those brands, but I don't see any immediate red flags.

One of those, A Bird Toy, is a long time member here as well as an approved vendor.

Is Runzas a good place to purchase from and are their products quality and safe?

I feed my budgies these mixed with fresh veg. I particularly like these as I find other brands are too big for them. But there are other options from this brand for bigger birds too.


Option for bigger birds:
