Birds USA: Nutrition Made Easy

Helpful answers to 14 commonly asked diet questions

By Margaret A. Wissman, DVM, DABVP, Avian Practice

Q: How long can I leave uneaten seed and pellets in the dish?

A: Dry seeds or pellets are fine to leave in a dish for a few days, if need be. Seeds and pellets are usually stored in a cool, dry, dark place, so being out in a dish at room temperature should be acceptable, as long as they do not become contaminated with droppings, moist foods or water. However, ascertain that there are whole seeds in the bowl and not just empty hulls or chewed up pellet pieces that the bird won’t consume. You don’t want your bird to starve.
