I've recently been introduced to the idea of feeding whole oats, barley, wheat etc... I had a APA judge tell me that he can tell the difference between a bird thats fed oats, and a bird thats only fed pellets, just by picking them up. I've also been told by others that whole oats and grains with a little linseed oil makes a really good diet for any bird. If you feed oats and other grains, whats your recipe and how do you mix it? Currently I am only feeding Layena pellets, but I am working on mixing my own feed with grains.
