    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.
