All Posts

At The Hungry Puppy, we understand that birds bring joy and color to our lives. Whether you're an experienced avian enthusiast or just starting on your journey to birdwatching, we offer a diverse range of bird food to cater to your feathered friends' unique dietary needs and preferences. From regular bird feed to specialized blends for specific breeds, we have everything you need to keep your avian companions happy and healthy.

  • Regular Bird Feed
  • Our selection of regular bird feed is perfect for a wide variety of wild birds that visit your backyard or garden. This blend typically consists of a mix of seeds, grains, and nuts that are carefully selected to attract a range of bird species. It's an excellent choice if you enjoy observing the ever-changing cast of characters that visit your outdoor space.

  • Mealworms
  • Mealworms are a high-protein treat that many birds adore. Bluebirds, robins, and warblers, in particular, are big fans of these nutritious larvae. At The Hungry Puppy, we offer both live and dried mealworms to satisfy the palates of your feathered friends.

  • Seeds
  • Seeds are a staple in the diets of many birds. We offer a diverse selection of seeds, including sunflower seeds, safflower seeds, millet, and more. Different bird species have different seed preferences, so you can tailor your offerings to attract specific birds to your yard.

  • Suet
  • Suet is a high-energy food source that is especially popular with woodpeckers, nuthatches, and chickadees. It's an excellent option for providing much-needed calories during cold winter months. We sell a variety of suet cakes and blocks to keep your feathered friends fueled.

  • Peanuts
  • Peanuts are a favorite snack for many bird species. We offer both peanuts in shell and peanuts out of shell to cater to the preferences of your avian visitors. Jays, woodpeckers, and even some parrots enjoy indulging in these nutty treats.

  • Specialized Bird Food
  • We understand that different bird species have unique nutritional needs and preferences. That's why we offer specialized bird food tailored to specific breeds:

  • Parrots: Our parrot blends are packed with a variety of nuts, fruits, and seeds to provide the essential nutrients and mental stimulation that these intelligent birds need.
  • Pigeons: Pigeons thrive on a mix of grains and seeds, and we have the perfect blend to keep them well-fed.
  • Macaws: These large, colorful birds need a diet rich in nuts and fruits, which our specialized macaw food provides.
  • Canaries: Delicate canaries require a blend of seeds and fresh fruit to maintain their health and vibrant plumage.
  • Cockatiels: Our cockatiel food combines a variety of seeds, grains, and vitamin-enriched pellets to meet the dietary requirements of these beloved companion birds.
  • Finches: These small birds enjoy a diet heavy on seeds, and our finch food ensures they get the right mix.
  • Songbirds: Attract melodious songbirds with our specially curated blend of seeds and grains.
  • Parakeets: Parakeets relish a diet of seeds, fruits, and veggies, which we offer in our specialized parakeet food.
  • Feeding your pets bird food, especially the high-quality brands available at our store and online, offers several benefits and advantages:

  • Nutritional Variety: Bird food blends are carefully formulated to provide a diverse range of nutrients. These blends often include a mix of seeds, grains, nuts, and fruits, offering a well-rounded diet for your feathered friends. This nutritional variety helps maintain their overall health and well-being.
  • Healthier Feathers and Plumage: A balanced diet rich in essential nutrients, such as vitamins and minerals, contributes to healthy feather growth and vibrant plumage. Your pet birds, whether they are woodpeckers, parrots, macaws, canaries, or cockatiels, will look their best with the right bird food.
  • Mental Stimulation: Many bird food blends contain a combination of textures, shapes, and colors. This variety stimulates your pet birds' mental faculties as they forage for their favorite morsels, which can help keep them mentally engaged and prevent boredom.
  • Digestive Health: High-quality bird food is formulated to support proper digestion in pet birds. The right balance of fiber, protein, and fat ensures that your birds' digestive systems work efficiently, reducing the risk of digestive problems.
  • Strong Beaks and Beak Health: For birds like parrots and cockatoos, the act of cracking and chewing on seeds and nuts helps exercise their beaks. This not only strengthens their beak muscles but also promotes beak health.
  • Species-Specific Nutrition: Specialized bird food blends cater to the specific dietary needs of different bird species such as songbirds. This ensures that your pet birds receive the right balance of nutrients tailored to their particular requirements. For example, parrot food contains larger nuts and fruits to meet the needs of these larger birds.
  • Attracting Wild Birds: If you're a birdwatcher or simply enjoy the presence of wild birds in your garden, offering high-quality bird feed can attract a wide variety of bird species. This provides you with the opportunity to observe and appreciate the beauty of nature up close.
  • Year-Round Support: Bird food is available in various forms, including suet, which is an excellent source of energy for birds during colder months. It helps them maintain their body temperature and sustain their activity levels when natural food sources are scarce.
  • Convenience: Bird food is easy to store and use. It eliminates the need to collect and prepare a variety of bird-friendly foods. Simply fill your bird feeders or offer the food in designated dishes, and your birds can enjoy a consistent and balanced diet.
  • Bonding and Interaction: Feeding your pet birds a high-quality diet creates an opportunity for bonding and interaction. As you offer treats or hand-feed them, your birds become more accustomed to your presence and can form stronger connections with you.
  • Here is a short list of bird food brands that you will find at The Hungry Puppy (including our own!). These brands have a diverse range of options to cater to the dietary needs and preferences of your avian companions:
