What do parakeets eat and cost of food
by: Tracie

It is suggested that you feed your parakeet Harrison's pellets or another color free, good quality pellet diet.

Most likely you will have to switch the bird to pellets, because pet stores feed seed diets. Parakeets do not usually live but a few years on seeds, and then die of fatty liver disease.

Harrison's High Potency Fine is about $10, and you only need to feed about 1/2 - 3/4 tsp a day. Then you can give a tiny amount of seed in the evening as a treat. A pound and a half of Roudybush pellets are only $5.25 .
