Identify seed or millet

Hi,

Im hoping we have some seed or millet experts in this group. See attachment for a copy of the seed or millet Im trying to identify. My sun conure loves these and I want to order a bag of it. So I need to know what type it is.

Can anyone help me?

Whatever it is it is hulled.
I would not want to put you wrong.
I would tend to agree with Karen, as this was my first thought.
You could try asking over here.

Scott and a few of the regular people are great helping with this sort of questions.


A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.

Safflower! At the Bird Farm I worked at you could buy them on their own. I'm sure you can purchase them on their own online too.

Yup, safflower, my birds love them too. Just remember, usually whatever birds "love" is good in restricted amounts. You don't want them filling up on just one food, variety is the key to good nutrition.
