Change of dry food

Today I decided to go back to the drawing board and experiment on food a little bit. I wouldn't call it re-inventing the wheel though as it is all tried and tested stuff by some of the brilliant bird keepers out there. I think I will split the birds into 2 groups. One will be on this new dog food I found and another group will be put on my tried and tested dry food I have been using. Change would be made gradually by adding a teaspoon of this grounded god food to the existing food daily.

Now, this food is interesting because this is the first dog food that I have come across that was made into pellets that look like chicken feed. Not to mention having a higher protein contents than other brands. The below shows a picture of the pellets ready to be grounded to smaller bits.
