Our goal for them is to have a healthy diet, and for the babies to recognize all possible foods as edible. This helps to aid in their adjustment when they go to their new home.

When our babies leave to go to their new homes, we provide a bag of small bag of seed and pellets to help make the transition.   This prevents birds from having to adjust to a new environment and new foods.
