Birds are incredible companions and when properly looked after can live long healthy lives. Whether you're feeding parakeets and budgies or wild birds outside, we here at Ann-imals Pet Supply Store have the expertise and experience to direct you to the best food. All bird's dietary needs are different, and what works best for some will not provide adequate nutrition for others. To that end, we happily serve the ME area to ensure the absolute best food for your feathered friends, improving their health and wellness and extending their lives.
Wild bird vs pet bird food- Wild bird food, depending upon where you live, is usually a combination of different types of seeds, consisting of thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. In addition, several wild bird feeds include peanuts and corn, which are preferred by certain species like cardinals and blue jays. Wild bird food is diverse in order to attract as several species as possible, so while it satisfies their caloric requirements, it's not dialed-in nutritionally like domestic bird food. Finally, millet - which is an usual ingredient in both wild and domestic bird seed blends.
Domestic bird food is usually a mix of similar seeds, with added nutritionally thick pellets included. Conures, doves, and pigeons enjoy millet, as do budgies and parakeets. They also enjoy safflower and sunflower seeds when they're hulled, though parrots and hookbills will choose larger seed types.
Food for pets will have prebiotic fiber and probiotic ingredients included, along with a range of various other all-natural seeds and fruits. These strengthen the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more carefully resemble their all-natural diet regimen, which would not typically consist of a few types of seeds.
Making sure sufficient nutrition- Birds need prebiotics and probiotics to maintain their digestive functions working efficiently. Omega-3 fatty acids from nuts and seeds provide fat for their brains and nerves, and boost the luster and shine of their feathers, while the various vitamins and micronutrients maintain them healthy overall.
In addition, as your bird ages, you will want to seek advice from an expert on what type of food you need to be feeding them. Chicks and younger birds have different dietary needs than older birds, and changing their food needs care and requires to be done slowly, as birds can have picky digestive systems. Slowly include the new food into your bird's dish, replacing more of the old seed with the new food each day to guarantee appropriate adherence to the new diet regimen.

I have been shopping at Annimals for years. Every time I go in, someone is always willing to help me find something or carry the large bags of food to the car. They also have everything I need for a dog with food allergies. I highly recommend Annimals!
Such friendly and knowledgeable staff! We don’t shop anywhere else for our Koda!

Ann-imals provides excellent service! if they don't carry a certain item, they'll be happy to special order for you. Their prices are comparable or lower than Chewy, and you'll be supporting a local small business.
I am so lucky to be only a few miles away from this fantastic store! The lovely people that run it are always so helpful and the selection of natural pet treats is always so good! I would highly switching from Chewy or Petco to this locally owned store!!!
