I have three Parakeets and tried this Optimal Nutritional Diet Food. It looked so nutritional with all the fortified foods and mix.
I was feeding my birds this for a few weeks when I finally realized that they were losing weight and looking quite sick. I finally noticed that 80 percent of the food I had been giving them was still in their food trays. I usually just refill without thinking about it. The birds were eating the seeds, but none of the other food ingredients , which make up most of the package. So basically, my birds were only getting 20 % of the food I was serving them. The added foods are either too big, too hard, or just simply undesirable for the birds to eat. If I had not noticed this, my birds could have died.
This product is not a sufficient food source for your bird , they wont eat..
