Birds are impressive friends and when properly taken care of can live long healthy lives. Whether you're feeding parakeets and budgies or wild birds outside, we here at Bark Ave have the knowledge and experience to direct you to the perfect food. All bird's nutritional needs are different, and what works best for some won't provide adequate nutrition for others. To that end, we happily offer the PA area to guarantee the absolute best food for your feathered pals, boosting their health and extending their lives.
Wild bird vs pet bird food- Wild bird food, depending on where you live, is usually a mix of different sorts of seeds, including thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. Additionally, lots of wild bird feeds include peanuts and corn, which are preferred by specific species like cardinals and blue jays. Wild bird food varies in order to attract as several species as possible, so while it satisfies their calorie needs, 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 blend of similar seeds, with extra nutritionally dense pellets added in. 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 bigger 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 strengthen the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more closely mimic their all-natural diet plan, which wouldn't normally contain a few types of seeds.
Making sure ample nutrition- Birds need prebiotics and probiotics to maintain their digestive functions functioning smoothly. Omega-3 fatty acids from nuts and seeds provide fat for their brains and nerves, and enhance the luster and shine of their plumes, while the different vitamins and micronutrients keep them healthy overall.
In addition, as your bird ages, you will want to speak with an expert on what type of food you need to be feeding them. Chicks and younger birds have different nutritional needs than older birds, and altering their food requires care and needs to be done progressively, as birds can have picky digestive systems. Gradually incorporate the new food into your bird's dish, replacing more of the old seed with the new food each day to guarantee proper adherence to the new diet.

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!!
