Ladygouldianfinch.com Seed Diet for Resting
Well we now Ladygouldianfinch.com's Seed Blends Available. Specifically formulated for gouldians. No color, no preservatives and no waste. Joanne has retired but her mix lives on:)
I got very tired of all of the small seeds and multi-colored bits and pieces in the various brands of Finch Seed Mix that my birds just wouldn't eat them. So into the trash they went!
Finally, I decided to mix up my own blend using the seeds I knew they would eat. I hesitated doing this for quite some time, thinking that if the seeds were in the mixes they must be important for the birds. However, I finally decided that if the birds wouldn’t eat them, what difference did it make if the seeds were in the mix. As far as I was concerned, it was just dead weight!
Knowing the importance of feeding the proper diet to my birds based on their seasonal cycles, I designed three unique blends. The finch mixes I found on the market had all the season's seeds in one bag. High calorie and high energy seeds during the resting season will not only upset the yearly cycle, but could also result in obese birds. They do not have extra energy requirements as they do during molting, breeding and raising babies.
Use for pet birds year-round, great seed mix for Lady Gouldian finches, canaries, parakeets, and all finches.
Ingredients:White Proso Millet, Canary Grass Seed, Japanese Millet
Our Finch Mixes do not contain any added vitamins, so I highly recommend that you use a good quality vitamin/mineral supplement along with the seed. In addition to seed, during the breeding and molting seasons to feed greens and/or sprouts daily, along with a quality egg/softfood mix.
