I've never fed Timmy organic anything. He is twelve years old and healthy.

Can't get a better test than that!

I do and don't. I always buy organic veggies anyway, so yes on that but as far as seed No. I feed nutriberries and they contain some corn syrup which mostly bothers me because of GMO's but there are other things I like about them so when it bothers me I remember birds like Timmy who is twelve plus other forum members with wise old birds and then it doesn't worry me. We have so many birds with all varying but healthy diets, pellets, some non pellets, I worry more about accidents killing my birds before their time than food.

what do you like so much about the nutriberries?
at the moment i feed Top, harrison's and a organci seedmix. problem is that i have to order the seedmix omewehere else, making it very expensive due to shipping costs.
i was thinking about trying nutriberries instead of the seedmix, but the cornsyrup...
i think they could be wonderfull to use in a foraging toy.

i would also like to try caitec pellets or zupreem pellets for the birdies, instead of harrison's and/or top, but, both are non organic. are these good brands?
what are the expreiences here with caitec oven fresh bites, zupreem natural and nutriberries (instead of seedmix)
