    I agree well balanced but most bird owners dont take the time to
    properly sprout seed or prepare food appropriate for birds- so
    Seed that is fortified is a reaL no no AND natural pellets are
    way better for them than you think, especially, Zupreem after 27
    years of supporting parrot life I do feel I know what Im talking
    about I dont believe in myths and people on here think BS!
