Birds on a mainly pelleted diet develop chronic kidney/renal
problems. Seed, pellets, millet spray and fresh foods for a
balanced diet makes a healthy happy bird. I hand feed from 10
days old or younger and abundance wean them to many many
foods. I also feed kaytee exact formula at night forever to
my almost 2 year old and my daughters 5 year old. I have
breeders in the aviary that will take formula from a syringe.
I buy a variety of seed mixes and pellets for total
differences just as I as an adult eat different things daily.
Hope this gives you some insight.
wishing you well,
