    !!!!!!!!Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    was it a good idea to swich my cockatiels from seeds to pelets? i heard that feeding seed diets can block the intake of calcium and the birds will consume to much phospherus. is this true?

    It's pretty much a lie.
    However, all seed diets are low in nutrition and high in fat, which leads to serious health problems down the line and is one of the big causes of early death.

    On the flipside, all pellet diets are not good either.
    Birds on a 100% pellet diet have higher instances of kidney problems.

    The best diet is a varied one that includes seeds, a GOOD pellet(all pellets are not created equal), and fresh vegetables, grains, and fruits.

    You be giving you birds a good balanced diet of fresh & dry friut, veg, a little seed, nuts etc....everyday. I give my tiel all of this in different bowls each day. I'm lucky he loves all his friut & veg & eats only a little seed & nuts each day.
