Could I blend this up a bit to smaller pieces for my parakeet first? The reviews say they don’t like it. Wondering if smaller pieces would work.
Answer by ChewyFeb 24, 2021
It would be perfectly safe to chop it into smaller pieces. They also offer a Canary Pellet as well as Finch granules, which already come in a smaller form.

Food Change

I had a lady who made fresh bird food and she retired. Can’t find a replacement, so tried this and it’s been a struggle to get her to eat it

Parakeets are loving it!

Parakeets always toss half of their other seed out of their bowl. They seem to be enjoying the pellets and there is far less waste on the bottom of their cage.

Great pellets for parakeets

These are great additions to food and fresh fine chopped or food processor of fresh veggies. This adds vitamins and needed nutrients for healthy birds.

Birds don't like it

I couldn't get my english budgies to eat it. Bigger birds may like it but mine did not.

not easy to convert seed eaters to pellets

It can be very difficult to convert birds that are seed eaters to a pelleted diet. So I make muffins using the pellets in the recipe to get my birds to eat it I'll give you the recipe. 2 cups of pellets such as these lafeber's, I pulverize them into a powder the first few times, then I only pulverize half of them after they get used to them. 1 very ripe banana. 1/3 cup wheat germ oil (I substitute 1/3 cup applesauce). 1/3 cup vegetable oil (I prefer to use red palm oil Harrison's sells it). 6 large eggs. 2 heaping tbls of canned pumpkin (not pie filling). 1 heaping tbls of applesauce, add this even if you substituted applesauce for the wheat germ oil. 1 cup frozen mixed vegetables, thawed and gently squeeze out the excess water with paper towels. 1 cup canned pinto beans, drained, but save the liquid. 1 cup of cooked brown rice, allow to cool to room temp. 2 cups of cornmeal. 4 tbls baking powder (I usually use half the amount). Mix the first 8 ingredients in a food processor, add the beans and brown rice and process just enough to blend. Pour into a large bowl and add the cornmeal and baking powder. It should have the consistency of cornbread batter. if it's to dry add some liquid from the pinto beans. This will make one 13X9 cake pan or 24 muffins. I make muffins and I line them with paper liners and individually freeze them I remove the paper liner before freezing. Bake at 350 until knife inserted comes out clean. I usually use baby food jars of applesauce. You can mix this up and replace applesauce with pears or a combination of both. Once your bird is used to this you can stop pulverizing the pellets and they will find chunks of pellets in their muffins and get used to them. And hopefully eat them.

A bit pricey but worth it! My birds are very picky eaters and they have hated all the pellet foods I’ve gotten them. This is the only pellet food they will eat. Thank you for making my birds healthier!

Budgies like a variety

I know you are going to hate this, but I am going to say the same thing again. I do not eat bird seed and my birds don’t talk, just make a lot of noise. They eat the seed, no complaints, no left over seed.

This food was worth it

No budgies love eating it I was skeptical at first about buying it but then I read the ingredients and I bought it and I mixed it in with their seeds that I bought previously and they are eating everything they love it they literally have eaten entire bowl of it and they normally don’t do that
