You've got the right seed size, but my Africans eat a more
varied seed mix than the cockatiel mix. I use a product made
by Higgins called "Small Hookbill, Safflower Gold."
It has a more extensive variety of seeds and include dried
fruits and nuts, but in a smaller, more manageable size for
the smaller Africans.
