My guys currently eat Zupreem naturals. I alternate between budgie and cockatiel size. They eat both and whichever I buy depends on what the pet store has when I buy it.
I tried the Hagen and Lafeber's but both birds ignored them. Harrisons is too expensive for me, and I haven't been able to find a place locally that sells Roudybush.
Jack came to me eating seeds, and I converted him over to the finch size Zupreem fruit blend within 2 weeks. Callie came to me eating the cockatiel size Zupreem fruit blend. I was concerned about the colored poops, and the fact that Callie never ate the banana shaped pellets, so I converted them both to the budgie size in the fruit, and then converted them both over to the natural. Callie actually prefers it, whereas Jack enjoys both. I still have some leftover fruit pellets and usually toss some in to birdie bread or every now and then hide it in Jack's foraging toys.
My guys eat a varied diet of fresh veggie mash, sprouts and seeds in addition to pellets.
I really like Zupreem as it is a decent brand, that is usually available in most petstores. It was important that the pellet brand I chose be easy to find if I ever had to move.
