what do you feed your quaker?

Well I am just trying to find out what kinds of diets other Quaker owners keep their fid on. What are some good pellet brands or pellet/seed mixes that are good for Quakers? What are some good treats? What is your birds favorite treat? My baby will not be home for a couple more months but trying to gain some knowledge ahead of time. I am already aware that fruits and vegetables will be part of the daily diet but I am trying to get some ideas. I'm also going to check with the breeder to see what she is feeding him. Let's hear your favorites.

Re: what do you feed your quaker?

i don't have a quaker, but some good pellet brands are: harrisons, higgins, kaytee, and lafebers. some good treats are nutriberries, unsalted sliced almonds, sunflower seeds, unsalted un buttered popcorn, millet spray, and plain oatmeal cooked in water. you can also buy cookable bird food at petco, im not sure what its called but oscar loves it! you can also chop up fruits and veggies and put them in a ice cube tray and top it off with a little water. let it freeze and then pop it out and serve! another good idea is birdie bread. hope this helped and good luck with yourr future baby!!!

my cat died at 3 years old due to invasive kideny cancer. he was highly anemic and his kidneys and blood work were off the charts, the vet said it was the worst he's ever seen. we had to put him down that day. up untill then, he showed no sings of illness that we could recognize, however he was a ticking time bomb and only the vet could see it. we thought he was just muscular, but it was just his bulging kideneys. animals hide illness! he only showed signs the day before he died, before this, he seemed completely normal, healthy, and his usual self. his name was maxie and he was my best friend, because we thought he was healthy we didnt take him for check-ups but had we cought it earlier he might have had a chance. we learned from this, we should have paid attention, take ALL your pets for check-ups so they can be helped early on before its too late.

Re: what do you feed your quaker?

I feed my Quaker predominantly sprouts. I sprout this mix. It's very easy and he LOVES it. I also offer a little of whatever we've got that he can have. Lots of kale, carrots, squash, peppers, zucchini, bread or pasta occasionally etc. He gets homemade bird bread a couple times a week, maybe a scrambled egg or a chicken leg. I also offer Roudybush to munch in the evenings.

Re: what do you feed your quaker?

Ralph's favorite brands of pellets are the ZuPreem Fruit Blend (small size) and Pretty Bird small fruit-flavored pellets. He gets a little millet every day, and a few safflower seeds as a treat. He loves fresh green peas and cooked corn, and cooked grains (quinoa is his favorite); he gets a variety of other vegetables every day too. His favorite treat is plain air-popped popcorn (no oil, butter or salt), and once in a while, a tiny piece of extra-sharp cheddar cheese. He also likes salt-free whole wheat crackers as an occasional treat, and whole wheat cinnamon toast.

Re: what do you feed your quaker?

i plan to feed my quaker(not getting for 2 more months) zupreem natural. that is what my breeder raises them on so no switching over so it is easy as for seeds, i didnt know the brand mattered that much because a seed is as seed. so i am now wondering a good seed mix brand.

Re: what do you feed your quaker?

My babies were 13 weeks when I got them and on seeds. I bought Zupreem fruit pellets and soaked them in pineapple juice and then slowly reduced the juice. They previously refused Harrisons High Potency but I kept offering and they just started eating that this week! They had been refusing all fresh food but CNYGUY suggested tinier pieces and now they are eating vegetables! They like brocolli, brussel sprouts, potatoes and rice the best.
