Unfortunately my boy was not happy with these pellets. He’s not a fan of pellets to begin with, but he refused to even try them. I thought that they had an odor which I felt was not appealing.
My original plan was to get the budgie size of another brand but found these and noticed they were smaller so I wanted to try. My budgies and zebra finches will *only* eat finch size pellets so I figured my new tiel would want budgie size pellets, one size up. I was thankfully correct, she started munching on these right away. (Always offer in addition to seeds for a balanced diet. Birds do not need a diet solely of grain, variety is key.)
I tried 2 other products before finding these for my cockatiels. 1 was a mix. They didn't want the fruit or sunflowers. The second was a little larger round pellet. They would throw them out and they rolled all over. These are smaller and don't roll and they liked it right away. I appreciate the auto delivery too.
So far my cockatiel seems to like this, I like the fact its not messy like the seeded food, he does not like dried fruit or sunflower seeds
This product is not found in stores; however it was what our now 14 year old Quaker Parrott was brought up on. He has never had any seeds. He's thriving and are so pleased that we can purchase this at such a good price and delivery service from your great company. thank you.
Exellent product-less waste less waste less mess.Once my bird was converted over he eats it up
My cockatiel would not eat this ~ the wild birds in my backyard would not eat it.....
Usually I can substitute cockatiel treats, toys and food for my sun conure and I can’t find his usual pellets from Exact anywhere. From the pictures I was expecting a small pellet. These are very very small and only slightly larger than a grain of sand. It looks more like canary food. Not something he can pick up. Still, we will try it and see if he will eat it. Exact is the brand he was raised on and it is what he likes most.
Our cockatiels love these pellets. I love the smaller size which is good for the birds. And Chewy rocks it with super fast shipping! This product arrived at my house at lightning fast speed!
The breeder from whom I purchased my baby cockatiels recommended Kaytee Exact. I mix this in with their regular Kaytee Forti-Diet Safflower seed mix.
