Re: Calcium Supplement?

As everyone else has stated, the current diet should have her covered.

Now, if you have received a blood test that showed a low level of calcium, than it is worth adding to the diet. Males can show a low calcium level, but it is rarer than females.

The best calcium is TUMS (white tabs). Obtain a pill grinder and simply crush one tab at a time as needed. It can be added over the top of dry food, mixed into wet. Most will go unused (falling to the bottom of the dry food bowl), but enough will carry into the parrot.
