Family Matters: Keep Your Feathered Friend Healthy


Keep Your Feathered Friend HealthyHumans aren’t the only ones watching their diets in this new year! We should be watching the diets of our feathered friends as well.

Wild birds can forage for a variety of seeds and plant parts, but our caged birds sing for the scrumptious morsels we feed them. It’s our job to meet their nutritional needs to keep them happy and healthy.

Seeds are a wonderful food for your exotic bird. Your exotics have refined tastes and need a varied menu to keep them interested in eating properly. Seed mixes add diversity to their diet if you offer canary grass seed, millet, safflower and more.

Further diversify their offerings with fruits, vegetables and pellets. Vegetables like radishes, carrots, turnips, cooked sweet potatoes, kale and green beans should make up about 30 percent of your bird’s diet, while sweeter fruits like apples, berries, kiwi and mango should account for about 15 percent of their diet.

Make sure you’re keeping your bird healthy with Thomas Moore Feeds Exotic Bird Seeds, a great source of omega-3 fatty acids for bird’s well-being!
