General Bird Seed Information:
Bird seed mixes provide the seed component of a balanced avian diet. In the wild birds eat a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, flowers, plants, nectar, grains, roots & tubers, nuts, grubs, animal matter such as insects and carrion, grit and even clay. A pure seed diet will be relatively high in fat and low in nutrients particularly Vitamin A and calcium. Seed is a vital part of a balanced avian diet but should not be the only part. Although "complete" diets such as pellets or fortified seed diets claim to provide a balanced diet they give bird keepers a false sense of security and do not replicate natural conditions or nutritional inputs. Also, while little is known about how the mind of a bird works, bird-fanciers will agree they are intelligent creatures and a monotonous pellet or seed diet will bore them. A varied diet provides mental stimulation for caged and aviary birds. We advocate a varied balanced diet thoughtfully provided by well-informed bird-keepers.
