Birds are fantastic buddies and when properly looked after can live long healthy lives. Whether you're feeding parakeets and budgies or wild birds outside, we here at Bark Ave have the understanding and experience to direct you to the ideal food. All bird's nutritional needs are different, and what works best for some will not provide sufficient nutrition for others. To that end, we happily serve the PA area to guarantee the best food for your feathered pals, boosting 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 blend of different sorts of seeds, including thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. In addition, many wild bird feeds consist of peanuts and corn, which are preferred by certain species like cardinals and blue jays. Wild bird food is diverse in order to attract as many different species as possible, so while it satisfies their calorie needs, it's not dialed-in nutritionally like domestic bird food. Finally, millet - which is a typical ingredient in both wild and domestic bird seed blends.
Domestic bird food is typically a blend of similar seeds, with additional nutritionally dense pellets added in. Conures, doves, and pigeons love 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 consisted of, as well as a selection of other all-natural seeds and fruits. These reinforce the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more closely imitate their natural diet regimen, which wouldn't generally include a few types of seeds.
Making sure ample nutrition- Birds need prebiotics and probiotics to maintain their digestive functions functioning efficiently. Omega-3 fatty acids from nuts and seeds give fat for their brains and nerves, and boost the luster and sparkle of their feathers, while the numerous vitamins and micronutrients keep them healthy overall.
Furthermore, as your bird ages, you will wish to speak with an expert on what type of food you should be feeding them. Chicks and younger birds have different dietary needs than older birds, and altering their food calls for care and needs to be done gradually, as birds can have finicky digestive systems. Slowly incorporate the new food into your bird's meal, replacing more of the old seed with the new food each day to make certain appropriate adherence to the new diet regimen.

Bark Avenue Pet Supplies helped me out during a rough spot. There was a tick issue while visiting family. Being from out of the area, I searched for a shop that was not a big chain. They groomed my dog and checked her for ticks. Thankfully, none were found.
I greatly appreciate them making time for me and my dog on short notice. I will definitely visit this store when I am in town in the future.
Very helpful and courteous staff and great variety of holistic food for our new pup.
Great folks. Dogs love it there!!!
This is a small, local business which provides options for quality items and healthy food. We adopted a puppy over a year ago - and we are new to the dog-owning world. Bark Avenue staff and the owner has been of great assistance to us in everything from selecting the right harness to the best food for our price range. Our pup LOVES the elk antlers and they last for months. If you want to support small businesses in the community, we have found this to be a great place to shop.
Small, local shop that is super cozy and very helpful staff!!
