I've included a link for Herman Brothers. They have several
finch mixes that you can look at and they list the
ingredients of all of them. They are a mom and pop operation
and are very accommodating. They will also custom blend a
seed mix to your specifications.
The problem is the expense of shipping. Don't know where you
If you live near a farm feed supply, you can buy straight
seed such as white/proso millet, red millet, german millet,
japanese millet, canary seed, and other seeds and make your
own blend. I've found this to be the most economical method
of getting what you want.
I'm also fortunate to live close to a Higgins wholesaler and
can buy their mixes which are excellent. They make a finch
mix with nothing but seed in it. I don't believe you can buy
direct from Higgins.
