Getting visits from the local wild birds? How about looking to care for the gift of a canary? The kids will thank grandmom for that one. The local pet store has feed for common house birds, as well as some neat options for the assortment of wild birds that visit in the city.
Parakeet: There are a few pet feed producers that make products strictly for a parakeet. Funsion is the most popular. A single bag of Funsion bird feed costs about $9.99 and should last upwards of a month or two depending on the size of the bird (a veterinarian should provide a specific intake recommendation). Nutri-berries are very healthy, and use ground up berries as the basis, alongside some useful vitamins.
A large bag of the Bird Delights can be purchased for about $26.99. Bird Delights are not as healthy as the Nutri-berries, but it is mostly about quantity (without sacrificing all that much in quality).
Wild Birds: There are tens of thousands of different wild birds, and these birds could be a whole lot trickier to provide for. There are a few industry staples in the pet store in Folsom CA. Peanuts are quite popular. Many birds are simply entranced by what is called Safflower. It is a little pricey, but it is exactly what many California species adore. Canary seed is another option, a name obviously derived from how much the canaries indulge in it. White proso millet is rare. To get a visit from a specific kind of wild bird, such as the sparrow or blackbird, the proso millet is a perfect seed.
Finch: Many of the aforementioned products for a parakeet can be found on the shelf of the Pet store in Folsom CA for finches. Living World offers a premium feed option for the finch. The bag is universal- a month’s supply for $7.99.
Birds make for a fantastic pet. They are easy to care for and incredibly fun to interact with. They do not take nearly as much work as a pet or dog. Visit the local pet store and find fair prices. The pet store is also affiliated with a local veterinarian where customers can save on care.
