Just looking for recommendations for sourcing bird seed in Melb. Was looking for 20KG bags and somebody in the forums recommended Avi Grain Finch Blue, but where to source it in Melb?

For what it's worth, my understanding is that the premium "Blue" avigrain blends are currently 100% Australian grown.

Assuming you get a new (or really old, I guess) batch.

Attend a Victorian Bird Sale and buy genuine Australian breeder quality grains rather than a price blended bag of seed mix

Thanks guys. More than happy to take other recommendations and other suppliers. Out east of Melb suits best. What's happening with the bird sales this year?
