What you feed your bird is one of the most important things in bird care. Just like kids and Adults, birds need their vegetables, grains, and many other types of foods to have a healthy balanced diet. We recommend a chopped diet that 50% veggies and 5% fruit and a mixture of seed/pellet. It is important that your bird also transitions to a mixed pelleted Diet. Our birds are weaned onto a seed/vegetable diet that has been developed for and by breeders. When the bird is ready to go home we recommend starting with a mix of 50/50 of seed and pellet and eventually working your way up to a 70/30 of pellet to seed.
