Because we cannot hear your tone of voice on the forum, it is difficult to know if you questions are rhetorical or genuine. ParrotletsRock took the question as genuine, and therefore answered it as such.Has anyone ever used the Vitakraft Australian seed mix
Yeah, my general impression of Vitakraft is that it's a mediocre brand. Not the worst of what you find for birds at pet stores, but also not what I'd consider high quality. (Then again, I think we've established that I'm kind of a snob about my bird supplies.)I have used vita craft seed sticks, however I don't like them... They are just a tiny bit of seed stick on a big stick.
Lol I was saying it in a nice tone of voice.Also isnt it good for cockatiels since its things they would eat in Australia or am I wrong.Because we cannot hear your tone of voice on the forum, it is difficult to know if you questions are rhetorical or genuine.

I also have not used that seed mix..actually I have only used treats from Vitakraft..never any of their seed mixes. However, I try to stick to very plain seed mixes. As in seed only..not added dried fruit bits, grass, corn, colored "crap", etc. I only buy boring plain seed for my birds..I don't want to pay extra money for all those fillers it sounds like that seed mix has in it.
It dosent have much sunflower seeds and if its things from Australia theres no harm in feeding it as long as they are getting everything else in their diet.I think you're wrong. There isn't very much information online about the food, but from what I've read, and the photos I've seen of the food, it appears to have a lot of sunflower seeds in the mix and plenty of fillers.
It does have good reviews, where people say their birds love it...however I have a feeling they are throwing away about 30-40% of the mix during food changes.
You can see a picture of the mix here on this product page: http://www.northernparrots.com/mobile/vitakraft-australian-food-750g-prod5950/
Yes but if they eat that plus all their normal stuff they get veggies etc then its good.Heaps of stuff here that you can get for cockatiels is pretty crap to be honest. Just because it's Aussie doesn't mean it's necessarily better. Getting something as close to their natural diet as possible that fits their nutritional needs is always the goal but not all bird food companies are as good at it as you might think.
Your talking as if u have it but u dont I do and not much sunflower seeds goes into their bowl.It has more sunflower seeds than I would be comfortable feeding my flock. They get a varied diet with seed, pellets, grain mash, and veggies...but even considering the large variety they receive in the rest of their diet, I would not consider feeding Vitakraft as my seed mix, which makes up a large part of a cockatiel diet.
Vitakraft is a mediocre company that sells mediocre foods..and that is why I have only tried their treats and none of their food. A company should impress me with their quality of products and their attention to proper avian nutrition if I am going to buy their products. They have done neither.
Im just gonna ignore what u just said.It wasnt rude I was saying it in a nice way and u would know that if u read the comments so your the one being rude and I put in LOL so people would know im being nice about it.WOW LOL doesn't make your response any less rude.
