A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

This photo was sent to us from Dr. Rolfe in Lake Worth, FL. Her client brought in a pet budgie with some health issues. The client was feeding a common seed mix from a popular big box store.
The bird’s owner had dumped the seeds out on her driveway and later, upon cleanup snapped this photo – showing a very noticeable chemical reaction.

The image is quite shocking and says a lot about what chemical pesticide/preservative content in common seed.
Would you continue to feed such an item knowing the chemical content was strong enough to visibly erase driveway stains?

Do you know what’s in – or isn’t in – the foods you feed your bird?
