The pellet versus seed issue is a big one! I let my birds go a week with out whole food because I have had that flu and didn't want to cook. So they had bird corn bread and seeds with some fruit.
Today I cooked up a blend of
red lentils
bistro rice blend
wheat berries
and popcorn!
40 minutes later it's done and it smells good in here.
They had it for lunch and for dinner. Their seed is untouched. I might take some for lunch and add grated cheese.
Popcorn was a new one for me. It's cooked but not soft. The conures and senegal loved the popcorn and the keets didn't touch it.
I also give them pasta and sauce. Peanut butter toast is a hit with the big guys, not the keets.
I am making bird salad tonight so I don't need to chop every day. They eat well.
Volkman Science diet seed for all my birds. I don't eat that!
I think they need variety. They seem content after a good warm meal, don't we all!

Define 'people food'. Food is food and rarely exclusive to one species. Do you mean prepared food? I often feed my birds vegetables, is that people food?

Yea people food is a very loose term.
I once accidentally ate a box of shotgun shells thinking they were little hotdogs. So technically shotgun shells can be people food but I would never feed them to my parakeet.
P.S. his name is RAWR!!

At first I thought this thread was about feeding birds to people. That would be terrible. Except for chickens and turkeys (they don't count).
