Well im hearing everywhere that since keets are so small they dont NEED to be on pellets, though mine are on them since they do eat them. Keets are known to eat alot of seed in the wild and thats what they've always been known to eat. Since its such a small bird it dosnt need a SUPER great diet compared to all the bigger birds that need a variety of all kinds of foods. Trying to convert a seed eating parakeet is a little long but you could eventually get it to eat them. Its all about the percentage. Add a little more into the seed each week. Also, if your keet is hand trained try hand feeding the pellets. Convertnig to pellets takes alot of patience, but its worth it in the end since its really nutricious for your little birdie
My cockatiel is converting to pellets, and is doing very well!
I might be done with it maybe next week. I've learnt that parrots only have 350 taste buds, when people have 10,000 taste buds. Thats why parrots love sharp tastes, like Jalapeño peppers.
