I wrote this on another forum and copied it to here, i think pellets are fine if your bird eats them but read up on the brand and the price as some are well out there...be happy.

I have seen Dr Ds pellets talked about here and other forums as well and i am not really impressed that much.
First there down right expensive and with shipping WOW, i read there site with ingredients and such and every one on here and other forums saying there the best thing in the world, i just don't see it.
There good but it says it has this this and this nothing else needed. I for one (as many here know) feed seed and been doing so for 30 years. I also feed many fruits veggies and a mess of other stuff to my guys and there healthy and seem to like what they get as well. Now i am not knocking pellets but PLEASE check out all the ingredient's in what you feed and then decide. Don't just give it cuz a few people said they heard its good or because their sites says its so great (there selling it) remember. Any way these are my thoughts...be happy.

Even though i feed seed to my birds i am not saying i wouldn't feed pellets as well, if i found one my guys would eat and it had all the good stuff in it i would feed that as well but till then i will stick with my seed and veggies and fruit mixes as well, yep just my thoughts.

I've seen their craze over it. I'm not sure on the stuff myself. I do feed some pellet. The zupreem fruit mix for cockatiels (colored) and they do seem to like them. Ususally feeds these to them by hand either that or sticks them on top of the cage on a plate and the banana shaped ones gets left. I currently have about 2 full bags of this stuff kicking around. I'm not sure on the whole feed pellets only, feed seed only thing. My guys get a mix. I have a mash from oliversgarden.com, i make them birdy bird, they get thier seed, they are welcome to eat pellet, and of course fresh veggies. I've decided not to order His pellet as shipping to canada would be quite costly if you didn't order a large amount and since i think only the two tielish one would eat it... be pointless when they already eat some pellets.

I have to say I have never heard of Dr D's pellets the only pellets I have bought are the Zupreem and I feed them because mine like them, I believe in variety and feeding a mix of foods seeds, pellets veggies etc etc I don't think one is better then the other and I don't advocate for either one, some swear by pellets and others swear by seeds I am in the middle on it :p everyone is entitled to there opinions and I respect that I just give my birds what they like what works for them doesn't work for everyone.

I haven't heard of the brand either so i can't really comment. :) I'm not really pro-pellet diet as it is though, i prefer a widely varied diet so whether seed or pellets or both is the base just doesn't worry me.
