Why your bird needs whole seed feed
Seeds to birds can be like candies to children – most would eat them all the time if they could. But like candy, some seeds are high in fat and too much fatty seed may make your bird avoid the more nutritious items (fruits and vegetables) that you provide for him.
Millet is lower in fat and, in fact, very nutritious. Millet is a grass and is one of the most nutritious grains you can give to your bird. It contains high levels of proteins, carbohydrates, B-complex vitamins, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium in addition to a host of other important nutrients.
Keeping a sprig in your bird’s cage not only provides valuable nutrients, but also keeps him occupied, and that’s always a bonus! But remember, millet is a treat. And all treats combined should make up only 10% of your bird’s diet.
It’s great fun for your bird to gather the seed, keeping your bird busy instead of bored.
