Yesterday, I went to the pet store to get some new dishes for my fids. Looking at the treats display, I saw something that surprised the heck out of me. Candy-coated millet!
Why would birds need candy-coated millet??? Why the extra sugar in their diet? The favorite bird treat is millet. I've never heard of anyone needing to coax a bird to eat millet. So, why would they feel it necessary to put sugar on the millet?? I'm really puzzled.
And, I did check the ingredients to make sure that it really was sugar that the millet was coated with. It was!
Any enlightenment is greatly appreciated.
