Grand Opening: Healthy Foods For Birds

Posted on

Some of you may remember when I posted this way back in February. I was planning on starting a new page that would have a list of foods that were safe and healthy for birds so that I could keep information about them all in one place, where I could easily find it, and other bird owners could look through. As you can see, it has taken me a very long time to finally open the page up, but I will be later on tonight. Right now it is obviously under construction as I have only made a long list of food names, but I’ll explain below about how I will change that. Much like Coco’sPellet Project“; a lot of the information here will be for bird owners to use so that they can decide on which foods they think are the best choice to feed their birds, except her list is much more detailed and about pellets. So, there you have it!

◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊

I created this page so that bird owners could have an easy to find and helpful list of foods (and other consumable items) that they could feed their birds. This page will include a large variety of foods, including:

  • Fresh Foods (Vegetables, Fruits, etc.)
  • Pellets (Totally Organic Pellets, Harrison’s, etc.)
  • Cooked Foods (Beans, Legumes, “Mash”, etc.)
  • Dry Foods (Seeds, Nuts, etc.)
  • Other Foods (Wheat Germ, Supplements, etc.)

This list will be edited and will be under construction while I work on adding different information and foods over time. To do this, I have first started with a fairly long list of foods and listed them in alphabetical order. I plan on making it a goal to complete one whole set of information for one type of food per week, or biweekly. That way, there won’t be an overload of work for me to do, and this list can gradually grow without any major changes.

I am by now means on expert *cough* Coco *cough*, but with the help of others I think this list will turn out pretty good. Which is why I ask for anyone that can help, to make this list grow by providing me with any information they might like to share about a type of food. If you know things like what vitamins a food contains, what a food’s benefits are (ex: plums promote healthy skin), how to serve and prepare a food, or anything that can be added to this list, feel free to share. 🙂

If you’re curious about a certain type of food, requests can be made for a food’s set of information to be done before another, so please go ahead and ask. I’ll be updating this list by alphabetical order, unless someone requests of course.

Remember, you can access this page from the home page of Kritter Krazy, and it is always displayed under the header.

  1. Wow that looks like it will be an invaluable resource! I think it’s really important to make things like that available to everyone. I know I always run to check out new fruits/veggies to make sure they are safe before giving them to the birds. If I can’t find a definite answer I err on the side of caution and don’t offer it.

    • Thanks! That’s exactly what I was thinking about when I started it, I’m always cautious with new foods but sometimes never find the right information I need on them.

      Hopefully this will turn out alright. It’s going to take me a while to complete all of those foods on my list, but I’m determined to finish them all! 🙂
