I thought I would send these recipes to the group, Weet Bix is not a very good thing to use with any birds, it is very sugary. You are best to use baby Farex (High Protein Cereal) which has protein and extra vitamins a much better thing for wildlife. Mealworms, crickets, etc., are also good to use and you can buy them from your local pet shops. With Welcome Swallows can also have the below diet, but must be very careful as they eat their food whilst in flight.
