Re: Calcium Supplement?

It sounds like she's eating pretty well, so I wouldn't be too concerned, but there's calcium powder that you can mix into the baby food. My conure would eat some scrambled eggs that I mixed the shell up into, you can grind them up so they're superfine as well and mix them in, even scraping a cuttlebone into her baby food will help.

Broccoli, kale, arugula, spinach, and similar veggies are all high in calcium. Almonds, sesame seeds, and brazil nuts are good too. Greens I buzz up in a food processor into a paste and mix it with baby food or apple sauce. If she's really picky, disguising it as much as possible should help.
