A finch’s wild diet consists of seeds, so people mistakenly believe that seed is all finches need. What is not taken into account is that wild finches spend their day busily foraging for other foods, such as native fruits, flowers, and other plant matter, as well as insects and worms — all of which supplement their diet with vitamins, mineral, and proteins. Seed is just one part of the equation. For pet finches, even seed mixes that are coated with vitamins and minerals fall short on complete nutrition because once the bird cracks and hulls of the seed, these benefits are lost. Fortunately, Lafeber’s Daily Premium Pellets for Finches takes the guesswork out of offering your bird complete nutrition.
Birdseed is not sufficient to keep your finches happy and healthy. The proper finch diet is made simple with Lafeber Premium Diet Pellets – we offer a comprehensive and nutritious food for your finch, no matter the species. Our scientifically developed pellets should make up the base of your finch’s daily diet. For a treat, try Popcorn Nutri-Berries for your finches and see how much fun they have tossing this snack around like teenagers at the movies!
- Free of artificial food colors & dyes
- Omega 3 & 6 Balanced

It’s amazing how much beauty, companionship, and almost magical sweetness can be contained in such a tiny body. Finch people understand this from firsthand experience. Although they don’t take up much physical space, finches occupy a huge area in our hearts and are wonderful little beings to share your life and home with; and, just like the largest macaws, they deserve the very best of everything.
A healthy diet will help your little finch friend live a long and happy life and, regardless of whether you have one special finch friend, or an entire loveable flock, Lafeber Company has nutritious and delicious foods to help you attain that goal, including:
Dr. Lafeber Sr. created the very first pet bird pellet. As a practicing veterinarian in the 1960's Dr. Ted Lafeber, Sr. was treating pet birds and soon realized that most pet birds were suffering from malnutrition. Birds cannot survive on millet, canary seed and sunflower seeds alone.
In 1975, he created the very first pet bird pellet recipe. Initially, many people thought he was crazy, birds eat seeds, not pellets, but then they saw the results… the birds eating pellets were healthier, happier and living longer.
Lafeber Company was built by a father-son team of veterinarians with a shared love of animals and a special passion for birds. Dr. T.J. Lafeber developed the very first commercial bird food pellet in the back room of his veterinary clinic in the early 1970s. Today, our recipes are developed by his son, Dr. Ted Lafeber, III, along with top veterinarians and nutritionists.
Lafeber Company’s manufacturing facility has always been located on the Lafeber family farmland, and all of our products are mixed, formed and packaged under one roof. Staying true to our motto —“Caring and working for the health of animals” — we created Veterinary Resources to offer exotic animal veterinarians an every-growing library of vet-written articles, client education materials, and videos. Wildlife Conservation is our online networking community dedicated to nourishing and protecting animals and their worlds near and far. Pet Birds is dedicated to the pet owner and offers a wide variety of information on their beloved pets.Each pellet is a high-quality blend of natural ingredients like ground non-GMO corn and soybean meal. Our grains are literally grown outside Lafeber Company’s front door. We also include whole egg, the most digestive form of protein, and essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids are added to the mixed grains. Lafeber’s Premium Daily Diet is omega 3 & 6 fatty acid balanced to give your bird a stronger immune system, stronger bones and healthier feathers. We also naturally flavor and naturally preserve our foods, and each batch of pellets is scientifically tested for quality at an independent laboratory so you can feel good about feeding Lafeber foods to your feathered companion.
Lafeber Company is one of the few food companies that produce all of their own food. All Lafeber products are proudly manufactured on Dr. Lafeber’s great grandfather’s farm in Cornell, Illinois. Carefully watching our food production from beginning to end allows us to produce the highest quality pet food available.
