Millets are annual grasses and are some of the oldest of cultivated crops. They are rich in carbohydrates and low in fibre.
Oats, Wheat and Corn are cereal crops which provide carbohydrate and protein.
Canaryseed is a winter grass and is grown anywhere wheat can be grown. Canaryseed is a vital ingredient in birdseed mixes as it is highly palatable and nutritionally different from millet being higher in fibre and lower in carbohydrates. Avigrain maintains a consistent level of canaryseed in all blends, no matter what the cost.
Grey Stripe Sunflower and Safflower are oilseeds which are high in fat and fibre. Birds love these oilseeds but because of the high fat levels should be fed sparingly.
Suitable for Parrots such as Rosellas, Superbs, King, Ringnecks and Regents and larger. Smaller Parrots such as neophemas or quarrions may leave some coarse grains.
