Is It Ok To Mix Pellets And Seed Together?

Post by countrygal_cc » Mon Jun 16, 2008 1:29 pm

Hello I ordered a bag of Kaytee Exact Original Pellets for cockatiels. I was giving cupcake cockatiel seed vitamin and mineral enriched I bought it at walmart. My question is can I mix some of the pellets with the seed or should I just try giving all pellets also it says on the pellet bag to just give 20 percent vegs and fruits. While I have been giving cupcake the seeds I have been giving mostly some kind of fruit every day and vegs once in a while too. If I give cupcake all pellets can I still give vegs and fruits every day? Let me know what you guys think if I should mix pellets with seed or just use pellets is pellets a good thing for cupcake?

You can also try putting some pellets in with the fruit and letting it absorb some of the juices and serve it as a 'treat' with the fruit. :) My birds will try anything that goes in their veggie dish!

im not sure how the pellets are , but the ones I get i soak them in some water or juice and then mix seed in with it, where they try to pick out the seed they are unwittingly eating some of the pellets too.
