Mine won't touch pellets, lol. I would swear they only claim they are better because they want to sell it. Birds out in the wild certainly don't walk into a store and buy pellets; they eat seed and whatever else they find that they like. And most wild birds are perfectly healthy.

Actually, they eat greens and berries in the wild. Pellets are ground up greens & berries (among other nutrients). Pet birds are conditioned on seed and their personalities are "matter of fact" and usually resistant to change (which stresses them out when we move them to another location or change their food). IMO pellets are better, but because they're newer on the market than seeds it's harder to get the older birds to eat them. What I did with my subborn tiels was mix the pellet in with the millet spray seeds (separate treat dish). They took to the pellets in less time than if you just threw pellets in thier food bowl. The treat/pellet mixture in this mannor made the tiels think the pellets were a treat! Also, note...you'll get less wasted food with pellet Big Grin

btw, not bashing with the quote...just stating my knowlege with raising 5 tiels (all currently on full pellet). Now, without further ado - Great Post OP! Rep point 4 u! Big Grin
