I have (rashly) promised my kids a budgie and am now frantically trying to find a peanut and nut free bird seed. It didn't occur to me at the time that I'd have a problem - I should have known better!

Does anyone know of a source for safe bird seed?

Many thanks,

Karen in Ottawa

Mom of Rachel, aged 10 and allergic to peanuts and nuts

Hi Karen,
I don't have a budgie....but one thought: could you make a seed mix yourself without the peanuts? I know they use millet in some types of birdseed for example and it is available for human consumption. maybe you could include things like sunflower seeds too? maybe they would eat flax or hempseed. this would probably take some research though as you'd want to make sure that your budgie has a nutritionally balanced meal.
