Birds are incredible friends, and when properly cared for, 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 nutritional needs are different, and what works best for some won't provide adequate nutrition for others. Therefore, we proudly provide the Southern Pines area with the 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, numerous wild bird feeds consist of peanuts and corn, which are preferred by certain species like cardinals and blue jays. Wild bird food is diverse 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 typically a blend of similar seeds, with nutritionally thick pellets included. Conures, doves, and pigeons love 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, in addition to a selection of other all-natural seeds and fruits. These strengthen the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more closely mimic their natural diet, which wouldn't normally consist of a few types of seeds.
Ensuring appropriate nutrition:
Birds need prebiotics and probiotics to keep their digestive functions working smoothly. Omega-3 fatty acids from nuts and seeds provide fat for their brains and nerves, and boosts 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 speak with an expert on what type of food you should be feeding them. Younger birds have different nutritional needs than older birds, and changing their food requires care and needs to be done slowly, as birds can have picky digestive systems. Slowly include the new food into your bird's dish, replacing more of the old seed with the new food each day to ensure appropriate adherence to the new diet.

Moore Equine Feed has earned my repeat business after my first visit today. I have regularly shopped at a big box store, but noticed Moore was on my route home from work.
I started with a simple message through their website and got a prompt reply. They read my questions fully and answered all of them in their corresponding replies, instead of just answering 1 or 2 like most businesses nowadays.
Their prices are directly competitive with the big box store i used to frequent.
My order was ready when I arrived and the customer experience was extremely pleasant.
The extraordinary attention to detail and exceptional customer service continued when they loaded my car. They noticed a bag of pine shavings had a hole prior to loading it in my car. They offered to even exchange it! They offer to load your vehicle for you.
I dont like shopping at new places because the majority of people don't take pride in the service they provide and/or make new guests feel welcome.
I felt welcomed here and they definitely appeared to take pride in the service they provided to me. This is a business I will be willing to go out of my way to visit when I need something.
Great work by the staff and I cant wait until I have to visit again!

They are a pet supply store and carry brands that u can't find most places. They even offered to order a specific flavor for my dog. Very friendly and my dog loves to go in and get lovin from all the staff and the treats they give her. Lots of natural treat options like dehydrated salmon, duck feet, antlers, and anything else dogs love to chew on.
Very happy customer with this location. I will continue to return with my baby girl for her treats and special food.
Such a wonderful atmosphere and the people are so friendly. A great place to get anything horse related and they have a huge selection of feed and hay.
The ladies are always super helpful, store provides a fantastic selection of equine and farm needs! During these Covid times I am reassured by the policy of everyone using hand sanitizer at the door if they must enter and consistently enforcing proper use of masks by everyone.
