    I'm in Central Indiana - but didn't see anywhere close to here that sells it. [​IMG]

    If online, have you found a place with the best prices & S&H? [​IMG]

    Thanks for your help! [​IMG]

    If you can't find any... you could try and find some wild bird seed mixes that are mostly millet. I get big bags of it whenever it is on sale at tractor supply. Even large pet store chains usually carry wild bird seed mixes or even large bags of cockatiel feed mixes that contain a lot of millet. Just make sure whatever you do buy doesn't contain any seeds that are too large for the keets that could run the risk of choking.

    I got mine at my feed store. They didn't have it out with the birdseed, but had 50lb. bags for $17. I have it in airtight buckets with gamma seals, as I only have 7 guineas. 50 lbs. fit in less than 2 5 gallon buckets. I mix a little wheat in, as the guineas seem to really love that too.

    In a pinch Parakeet seed is mostly white millet. With a few unrolled oats thrown in.

    Drs Foster and Smith has bags of pure white millet. There's a huge sale now, customer service is great and shipping is free on all orders over $49.

    My local feed store has the white millet, but I usually buy the wild bird mix with the millet in it since it is cheaper.
