Just been doing some more research re good, quality seed. At the moment the fids are on Vitakraft Premium Menu which seems to be fine. I've also read good things about Beaphar. I'm thinking of maybe sticking with the Vitakraft and adding another quality mix to try and ensure they're getting as many healthy ingredients as possible. Or getting Beaphar and adding another seed mix. (Yes, I do give them veg, egg and fruit etc too). I came across this not well-known make on Amazon 'Rio' (maybe Russian? Not sure...)which claims to have good ingredients including 'rare black millet'. Anyone heard of it at all? Any thoughts?
I'm familiar with black millet, some seed mixes do have black millet included as well as the golden and red millet.
I don't know if Rio brand is good or not, they don't sell it in my country.
My flock gets the Vitakraft Premium Menu (sugar free recipe) and I also make my own mix by getting fresh seeds from a local produce store.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
Thanks for your quick reply. :-) I am very pleased to know that my budgies are on the same food as yours! I only get the sugar free Vitakraft one too. (Apparently it has honey which some people seem to think is not so good for the birdies, but it seems to be a low percentage according to the contents breakdown, so I'm thinking that's not so bad / too sweet for them).
