Millet is one of the better carbohydrate sources for birds because it is highly digestible. Many grains acidify in the stomach, but millet is highly alkaline to counteract acids and digest more easily. It is also an excellent source of protein, with one of the highest amino acid profiles of all the cereal grains.
Low in fat, millet supplies Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, folate, and Vitamin K, as well as the minerals calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, zinc, manganese, iron, and potassium. And, because millet is high in B vitamins, it is also a natural stress-reliever for birds providing entertaining foraging fun.
