Default All Living Things brand seed mix

Hi everyone..
I use Dr. Harvey's and Volkman's seed, which I mix. Due to the price of the Dr. Harvey's, I'm always on the look out for a less expensive, yet good quality seed to blend it...
Yes, I offer pellets (Roudybush crumbles are the current fave at my house) and veggies, too... but.. they are dyed in the wool seed eaters.
So... I ran across this brand at a big box pet store (Don't tell Faerybee I went there, as I wore my fake nose and a wig!! ).
I used it as their foraging food this morning and... surprise... THEY LIKED IT!! So, I added it to their seed mix and we will see.
Anybody try this one?
Any other suggestions for a less expensive, quality food?? I've also use Drs. Foster and Smith, but mine don't like big chunks of fruit or anything and don't eat the colored bits
Thanks for any suggestions or reviews on the ALT brand.

Hmmmm, so you were in one of those pet stores again were you?
What am I going to do with you!
The fake nose and wig just don't quite cut it.

I've used the ALT seed mix and my birds all like it too.

Lately I've been having problems with the Drs Foster & Smith seed mix due to the changes they've made in the formulation.
I also bought bulk seed from them and it ended up being stale.

I'll be trying the Dr Harveys and Volkman's next, I believe.

Darn you.. on to me so quickly!! Actually, I was at PetSmart.. and they just started carrying the All Living Things brand. And.. if you think it is ok, then it must be. You have a great knowledge base
Mine just didn't take to the F and S seed this time so much. I don't think I'll order it again. The Volkmans and the Dr. Harvey's is good. There seems to be a fair amount of nyjer seed in the Dr. H's food... mine have decided they don't like that, either.

Judy, they should hire your birds to do their commercial with the same tagline like the old Chex cereal ad "MIKEY LIKES IT!"

None of my birds like the Nyjer seed! That was one of the seeds I purchased to "mix" when I decided to try mixing my own seed and everyone of my birds turned up their beak at it.

The canary seed from Dr. F&S wouldn't sprout AT ALL!
All in all the money I spent on the last seed I bought from F&S was wasted. I tried their canary seed mix and the birds don't like it. I tried the budgie seed mix (again) this week and they don't seem to be interested in it either. Thankfully, even Sunny has been eating his pellets so at least I know they are getting the nutrition they need. The All Living Things Seed has been a hit every time I've used it.

I won't try the Dr. Harvey's since you said it has a lot of the nyjer seed in it. I guess the Volkman's may be the best option at this point. I would like to have a quality seed mix but they seem to be getting harder and harder to locate.

I ended up putting most of the Dr. F&S seed outside for the outdoor birds and even they didn't want the stale canary seed.

Definitely!! They are up for it! In fact, since Lemony is awaiting her starring role in the 'Revengers', she has a bit of free time for just this very thing. She can look down her beak with a fearsome stare that will convey just how beneath her a certain brand of food can be.
[email protected]@@!!! Lemony DOESN'T like it and doesn't care who knows it!!

Faerybee.. I am thinking along the same lines... Mine used to eat the nyjer in the dr. harvey's, but mostly leave it now. Maybe just Volkman's??? I love to fiddle around with different combos.. I know, I know
