    We feed a mixture of healthy seed/ dried fruit/ pasta/ veggie and
    offer pellets but not fond of only pellet diets. Pellets are not
    natural to birds, and with a well balanced diet birds need bee
    pollen,hemp seed bugs an grub mixtures and natural supplements
    such as liquid kelp in water bottles, liquid sunshine drizzled
    over foods to maintain healthy feathers and talons.Make sure birds
    get proper full spectrum lighting and drenching showers to
    maintain feather health and good preening habits. Humidifires are
    used in dry months and always run a air cleaner, change filters on
    furnaces frequently.
