I have been offering Julian seed twice a day for 20 minutes at a time. Morning and evening. I have Roudybush pellets that are out 24/7, which he don't touch. But will sit there and shake and scare me that maybe he is sick (just had his first full check up yesterday and he is very healthy)when I give him his seed back and he starts eating but will sometimes shake his wings at the same time. Is he ok, just starving or just trying to make his Mommy scared

I took Julian to the Vet yesterday and that is how he told me to trim his wings, with leaving the two end blue ones. That way he said they look nicer but still can't fly.

We don't do alot of fruit and veg's for the birds everyday. I have treats for them from the pet store . pumpkin seeds, ect..... thay eat what we eat for dinner. vegs wise . I cook more on the weekends so thay have better foods then. My question is should I use pellets for both birds? Milo is the qp ( about 2 1/2yrs old) and Nibbles is a amozon ( 4 years old). I only tell you that because both have been on seed there whole life.
I think I will try one of these other brands you have talked about, did'nt think of that. I thought if thay liked one thay would like them all. You know like thay are all pretty much the same? I also work long hours every day, so it will be hard to do the twice a day thing. But maybe if I start on a weekend thay will take right to it. I know it's better for them so I really want them to convert. Thanks for talking about this.

Fortified seeds are coated with the vitamins and minerals...what part does the bird eat? THE INSIDE...so how much of the vitamin package gets in our pets? VERY LITTLE. Since they do not have saliva to bind to the coating and ingest it, not much good is done.
The best diet we can offer are fresh foods, but that doesn't always happen. SO we do have to make up for it. This is where our pelleted diets come in. This pellet should make up at least 1/2 of the diet up to 3/4 of it. The balance should be mixed between fruits, veggies, carbs, proteins, and no more than 10% of the diet should be seed.

There are no stupid questions!!! We buy Zupreem for Cockatiels, and I think most people buy that size. They are the perfect size for Quakers.
