Hi y'all. I have just removed seeds from Missy's daily foods. She has millet sprays on her "tree" but that is all. I don't want her to get FLD so I'm still learning.
She has her chop which she does enjoy, some cooked egg, she also enjoys, limited fruit, and, atm, VetaFarm Nutriblend pellets (small - might need to go tiny size) I'm wondering if they colour them to entice the parrots too them but I'm not sold on the colours. She's not overly fussed on the pellets but I don't want there to be any gaps in her dietary intake, so can anyone suggest a better choice of readily available pellets for her in Australia?

Yeah, Tiki is right. Good brands are: Harrison's, Roudybush, Top's, Lafeber's, and BirdTricks pellets. Just get whichever is most available to start, but then decide which your bird likes.

Most online stores ship, but obviously it would be better NOT to pay extra for shipping. I don't know about bird stores and stuff in Australia
Plenty of our members live in Australia. Ask them?

I wouldn't feed your IRN roudybush or lafebers, both of those pellets only contain fillers like corn, wheat , and soy and then everything else is an artificial vitamin or preservative. I'd try Harrisons or TOPs
