    You had me up till the steak! The reason I asked is that I too raise
    Africans and I do wean my birds on to pellets. Their first foods are
    fresh foods, then pellets come in second.
    I do this for several reasons. Once accustomed to pellets, most
    birds will eat anything. Once accustomed to seed, it's tough to get
    them to like pellets. I do feed seed, but not as a staple of the
    But once out of my home, I have no control over what someone does,
    and I've learned that the best, heartfelt promises of a varied diet
    often fall by the wayside. Cooking and preparing for birds is a big
    task and unfortunately, not everyone will continue it.
    So pellets at least give them a more nutrient rich diet if their only
    choices are pellets and seed.
    Good luck with your new bird.
