Parakeet Food

Parakeet foods are specially formulated to be a balanced blend of nutrients for a healthy diet for your parakeet. While parakeet diets may include fortified seed, pellet, or a mix of the two, there are plenty of different blends for even the pickiest of birds. A balanced diet is essential for good health in any pet bird and specially formulated diets should be supplemented with fruits and vegetables, treats, millet and cuttlebone.
