雖然英文落落長不過有些資訊還蠻實用以及實際的喔,
關心愛鳥的你就花點心思看看吧。

pellet:俗稱的滋養丸 vitamins and minerals:維生素和礦物質


其實五穀種子食物對鳥寶的吸引力是最大的,但卻偏偏容易造成過胖、營養不均衡
就算主人提供了再多樣化的五穀,但吃不吃進去卻是調皮鳥寶自己的選擇啊!
所以會造成鳥寶在營養的攝取上不均衡,以及維生素和礦物質缺乏的情況。

至於滋養丸的好處就是已經幫主人和鳥寶計算好鳥寶健康所需啦!
不管是蛋白質、維生素A、維生素C、E一些哩哩叩叩的營養滋養丸都包含在裡面囉。
並減低鳥寶過胖的肥滋滋危機啊,
畢竟寵物鳥運動量過少~瓜子吃太多很快就變小胖子了。


我自己覺得最皆大歡喜的方是就是鳥寶喜歡吃滋養丸也吃五穀蔬果
這樣就不用傷腦筋囉!也達到以天然食物供給為目標的飼養方法
多樣化和均衡提供各種蔬果穀類和滋養丸的搭配給鳥寶不同的營養和選擇
主要食物為滋養丸的話飼主們也可以適度地更換品牌喔

而且這樣還可以把瓜子拿來當訓練的最佳武器喔~
因為不常吃到就顯的更加珍貴啊!!

Pelleted Bird Food, Advantages of

Is your bird eating the best foods? Unfortunately, if it were left up to
The Nutritional Advantage of Pellets
our feathered friends, every food crock would brim with a smorgasbord of seeds. But seed-only diets pose serious health risks for your bird. In addition to being high in fat, most seeds lack the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients your bird needs for optimal
health. Thankfully, it is easy to offer a more nutritional diet.
SEED DEFICIENCIES
For most birds, seeds are like irresistible candy. They taste delicious but are not nutritious. In fact, seeds are often low in Vitamins A, D3, B12 and minerals like calcium, iodine, sodium, and more. Different types of seeds also have different protein, carbohydrate, and fat levels, which makes it tough to ensure your bird's diet is nutritionally balanced. Many seed-only diets often try to compensate for the nutritional deficiencies of individual seeds by combining a wide range of seed varieties. But since your bird is free to pick and choose the type of seed she prefers, there is never a guarantee that your bird is eating properly.

 

A PREFERENCE FOR PELLETS
Pelleted diets offer more complete nutrition than seed-only diets. Even better, many pelleted foods are formulated with a wide range of healthy ingredients for specific birds. This means they offer the exact levels of protein, fat, fiber, and nutrients your bird requires. Plus, pelleted foods are available in a range of shapes, textures, colors, and sizes to appeal to your bird's distinct preferences. Finally, pellet diets are generally fortified with vitamins and minerals. And since your bird eats the entire pellet instead of discarding the vitamin-coated hull of seeds, she often needs less supplements than she would with seed-only fare – which saves you money in the long run.

TRANSITIONING TO PELLETED FOODS
The simplest way to convert your bird to a pelleted diet is by slowly mixing the new diet in with her old seed-only mix. Each day, gradually increase the amount of pellets and decrease the quantity of seeds until your bird is wholly converted to the pelleted foods. Monitor your bird closely to be sure she is eating enough during the conversion process. 

Another trick to converting your bird from a strict seed diet is by offering the pellets as individual treats and rewards for good behavior. Or, you could pretend to eat or peck at the pellets yourself. Birds are social eaters and will often copy what humans and other birds eat. Finally, ensure you offer pellets first thing in the morning when your bird is the hungriest. Then, offer any other seeds, fruits, or nuts that should be included in her diet later in the day.
