For a daily, routine diet, I do not feed my parrot seeds or nuts of any kind (any kind of sunflower seeds included). They are used sparingly as treats, and just a tiny bit of their nutrition, as they do need just a tiny bit of fat in their diet.
BUT I'm just looking for a cheaper way to buy and have them, besides the parrot shop.
I like the fact to find out from here that the white striped sunflower seeds have less oil than the all black sunflower seeds (black oil sunflower seeds). SO THEN - it is the "white striped" ones that I will stay for, and would look to buy them in bulk elsewhere, instead of the parrot shop. Can ya'll recommend where to buy these? Plus the parrot shop near me sells there's mixed with other little things in it which my parrot does not like, and does not eat; he throws them aside/out of the bowl, etc., and he only eats the white striped sun flower seeds out of this mixture.
So does Petco and/or Petsmart carry the white striped sunflower seeds for inside parrots which are pure, no salt, not roasted or cooked, but raw? Healthy and safe for parrots? Does Petco/Petsmart also carry the Sawflower seeds for parrots in bulk? There's got to be places these types of seeds for parrots can be gotten cheaper besides the parrot shop. A friend who had a parrot, (now lives in another state, out of touch), from when we were growing up, I'd always seen her give her bird the white striped sun flower seeds. Now I want to know where to get them
I don't want to be ordering online, just want to be able to go to local store and pick some up. Thanks . . . . .
Sawflower seeds are indeed a good approach too, and I alternate with both as treats, sparingly, as well as almonds and walnuts. Almonds have good protein in them too.
