This may not appeal to you in your world, but in her world this millet seed is a tasty treat for Sadi, our parrot.
|Seeds to birds can be like candies to children - most would eat them all the time if they could. But like candy, seeds are high in fat and too much fatty seed may make your bird avoid the more nutritious items (fruits and vegetables) that you provide for him. One particular seed, millet, is lower in fat and in fact, very nutritious. Millet is a grass that has the|
|botanical name of panicum miliaceum and is one of the most nutritious grains you can give to your bird. Millet contains high levels of proteins, carbohydrates, B-complex vitamins, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium in addition to a host of other important nutrients. (Credit: Drs. Foster and Smith)|
