The great debate among bird pet parents: a seed based or pellet based diet. While there has been much controversy over whether or not pet birds should be eating a diet based off of mainly either seeds or pellets, The Hungry Puppy has the products to satisfy both sides. Carrying brands like Abba, Browns, Kaytee, Lafebers, and more, our store has all your bird food options.
Seeds have become a popular option for many birds. This is mainly due to the fact that wild birds have been known to eat them. However, the diet wild birds require are quite different from that of pet birds. Wild birds eat seeds as they provide them with fats and carbohydrates for energy, but with every seed they eat comes even more bugs and insects as their source of protein. So seeds are acceptable and a great additive to your companion’s meal, but because they can sometimes lack necessary vitamins and minerals, it is still important to balance it with other components. Seeds can be mixed in with pellets. Pellets are specifically created to provide your bird with a nutritionally complete diet. They have the appropriate levels of fat, vitamins, and minerals, all in a compact form comparable to cat and dog kibble. Certain fruits and vegetables make great additives, too!
Luckily, The Hungry Puppy’s products have seeds, pellets, fruit, and vegetables all on the menu. Whether you want to give your pet a diet composed of pellets, or a diet that combines all the components together, we have you covered. You can choose to purchase options specifically tailored to a specific bird, such as parrots, macaws, cockatiels, pigeons, canaries, etc, or you can choose one that is suitable for all birds. Lafeber’s creates pellets for birds’ daily feeding. They’re high quality blends of natural ingredients like corn, soybean meal, egg, and others that supply your bird with Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids. Lafeber’s also mixes seeds with pellets and fruits, such as pineapple, papaya, and mango. Kaytee Fiesta Bird Food contains prebiotics and probiotics through a blend of fruits, vegetables, seeds, and grains that support digestive health and your pet’s particular species. Brown’s bird food, as well as Abba bird food, uses over thirty natural ingredients in each bag, providing a powerhouse diet of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Whether you’re a supporter of seed diets, pellet diets, or not really sure of either, The Hungry Puppy has a mix of all three bird food options to make sure your pet is receiving the most complete, nutritious diet they deserve!
