Birds are amazing companions, and when properly looked after, can live long & healthy lives. Whether you're feeding parakeets and budgies, or wild birds outside, we have the knowledge and experience to help guide you to the perfect food. All bird's dietary requirements are different, and what works best for some won't provide adequate nutrition for others. Therefore, we proudly provide the Saukville area with the very best food for your feathered friends, enhancing their health and extending their lives.
Wild bird vs pet bird food:
Wild bird food, depending on where you live, is usually a combination of different types of seeds, including thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. Additionally, several wild bird feeds include peanuts and corn, which are preferred by certain species like cardinals and blue jays. Wild bird food varies in order to attract as many different species as possible. So while it satisfies their calorie requirements, it's not dialed-in nutritionally like domestic bird food.
Domestic bird food is generally a blend of similar seeds, with nutritionally thick pellets added in. Conures, doves, and pigeons enjoy millet, as do budgies and parakeets. They also enjoy safflower and sunflower seeds when they're hulled, though parrots and hookbills will choose bigger seed types.
Food for pets will have prebiotic fiber and probiotic ingredients included, as well as a variety of other natural seeds and fruits. These boost the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more closely mimic their natural diet, which wouldn't generally contain a few types of seeds.
Ensuring adequate nutrition:
Birds need prebiotics and probiotics to keep their digestive functions working efficiently. Omega-3 fatty acids from nuts and seeds provide fat for their brains and nerves, and enhances the gloss and shine of their feathers, while the different vitamins and micronutrients keep them healthy overall. Additionally, as your bird ages, you will want to seek advice from an expert on what type of food you should be feeding them. Younger birds have different dietary requirements than older birds, and changing their food requires care and needs to be done gradually, as birds can have finicky digestive systems. Gradually include the new food into your bird's dish, replacing more of the old seed with the new food daily to ensure appropriate adherence to the new diet.
At Pet Supply Port, we specialize in ensuring your bird is supplied with the most effective nutrition for their specific needs. Whether you're feeding wild birds in your backyard, or a parakeet in your home, our friendly, professional team has your back. If you're in the Saukville area, give us a call at (262) 268-9966 and we can help optimize your bird's feed for a long, healthy life.

I finally found this wonderful pet store! I'm so happy I found it. My pup is a finicky eater and this store is like the Outpost for pets. I've found so many wonderful, nontraditional things that he loves at this store.
Because Buddy is allergic to chicken, I can't feed him most dog foods. I have spent hours in pet stores struggling to read the tiny print on the food bags. I have a visual challenge that makes it hard to see the print on most bags and have left many stores extremely frustrated.
Every time I shop here, I get so much friendly help, I never reach that frustration point. It's refreshing to do where the staff knows the products and wants to help you find what you need. I feel like my money matters every time I enter the store. I feel like I'm an important part of their business.
I've never been to a pet store, where the owner researches every product she sells. That shows me that she cares about my pet just as much as she does her own. I've been shopping at Pet Supply Port since they were in Port. The entire staff are educated about what will work best for your pet, and if you take your baby in they will definitely get some love. Try it. You'll love it. 😁😁
