Sorry to be a downer, but I think that that is VERY wrong. I think that a chop mix containing various leafy greens and vegetables should be the majority of the birds diet, following closely by sprouts, cooked pastas/rice/quinoa etc. and fruits a bit of seed and nuts depending on the species and their locality and if you must feed pellets then I believe they should only be fed a little bit at a time daily. As I've said in other posts before, I have found pellets to be more of a supplement in my birds diets. Sticking to natural feeding plans is best. Nature knows better than we do! And pellets most certainly aren't natural! No such thing as a pellet tree Just my opinion anyway, but it is what I have had most success with

Not a downer at all! I didn't *make* this chart, I just found it. I don't trust anything on the internet (about birds), anymore, unless I clear it through this forum, first.
(ps. maybe now I get to make my own chart, squee!)

Yeah I read that you found it, no worries And you'd be surprised. A lot of people are stuck in their ways or think that they're right, but there are things that are proven with diet that people seem to ignore just because something has fancy packaging and makes plenty of promises I know I'm being biased, but natural is surely better in any case, with any animal?
