This nonsense of not feeding birds seed and only a pelleted,
organic, natural colored diet is absurd.
Pellets, no matter who makes them, are not a varied enough or
nutritionally complete diet for ANY bird to thrive both
physically and mentally.
All birds should have a VARIED diet which includes a high-quality
seed mix, pellets, fresh vegetables, fruits, greens, soaked
seeds, sprouts, legumes, cooked grains, etc. Nuts both shelled
and in the shell are necessary, also.
No bird should ever be given just one kind of food. That in
itself is abuse. Sure they will exist, but they are being
deprived of what nature would consider a natural diet.
Stop preaching this propaganda as new folks to birds actually
believe these ridiculous myths.
I'm not discounting the stool having red in it and I do believe
that a vet shoulc be consulted.
