Re: Dumb things

When I first got Levi (last Aug) I was giving him organic fresh fruits & vegetables everyday. In addition to pellets and a grey seed mix. My CAV told me to stop with the fruit. That it was too much sugar & his gram stain reflected that as well. I felt bad but, pulled back the fruit & only give it occasionally as a treat. Every gram stain since has been WNLs. She told that the increased sugar builds up bacteria in their gut and can lead to health issues. I was so surprised. I always see videos of parrots/birds eating fruit all the time. I recently watched a video about the Pak-O-Bird and the woman was offering her bird a life savor.
This is my Levi, my luv 🐦💙
