Feeding Instructions

Fill your pet bird’s food dish with approximately what your pet consumes within a 24 hour period. Usually for cockatiels, the portion may range between ¼ to ½ cup of food per bird. Adjust the portions to meet your bird’s specific dietary needs. Supplement this diet with fresh fruits and vegetables. Remove uneaten food and seed hulls and clean food dish before refilling with new food. Always maintain fresh drinking water for your pet bird.

Transition Instructions

While introducing a new food to your bird friend, gradually mix new food with your pet’s old diet. Increase the amount of food over a period of 7 to 10 days. This will allow your pet to adjust to the new food and it will prevent any upset to your pet’s digestive system.

    The Best per Boogie bird

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    I have been feeding this food to my 34 year old cockatiel for many years. I didn't realize that Chewy carried it!! Ordering from them now, of course. It is the best because it does not have any artificial ingredients or dyes. Boogie loves it and he is an ancient old birdie!! He gets this food, millet sprigs, gravel, and good well water...no fluoride. He also is required to exercise his wings with "Birdie Flight Time" every day. So glad you are carrying this food now. Thanks Chewy.

    My cockatiel is picky and hasn't really showed me his opinion yet...but it looks like a nice selection of food to pick through.

    Finally a winner!

    By on

    I have two older cockatiels that have usually sorted through any seed brand and only eaten a small percentage and left the rest. I am finding much more seed hulls left with the Higgins brand and they are wasting less overall. I will guess they really prefer this one! I will continue to buy the Higgins seed for sure.

    Good quality seed

    By on

    This is a good quality seed for cockatiel sized hookbills. It doesn't have an overload of sunflower - a good mix of seeds. Higgins always has clean seed without dust or debris. Remember your birds need fresh vegies (and fruits for some) every day in addition to seed.

    Sally my very picky bird

    By on

    I have a Nanday conure her name is Sally. Sally has had a very rough life and I rescued her from that life. I have tried her on many many different seed blends and she has decided that this Higgins is the best. Thank you Chewy for making it so easy to find without having to leave my house.

    Good food for your bird

    Good seed for your bird. I use this along with Harrison’s and mix it for a balanced diet and grow my own sprouts also. My cockatiel loves it!

    Tasty seed

    By on

    Food smells delicious. It is mostly small seeds so if your bird prefers larger chunks choose a different food. My cockatiel and conure both enjoy this.
