Sunflower Seeds


Is it safe to give our cockatiels sunflower seeds? I’ve read yes in moderation and I’ve no not safe.


Answer:

Hi Pam,

Unsalted sunflowers seeds are safe for your birds, but they offer very little nutrition. So one or two per day as a treat is about all you should offer.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
