Need help

My parakeet has brownish feathers above the cere crusty beak and always wants to sleep my Vet said it was malnourished so I bought some liquid supplements and gave it more sunlight

Is it true what else could I do then

When he has trouble eating raw food is this because he doesn't like them or another issue? I would try him with some leafy greens eg spinach is high in vitamins and minerals. Also when you mention giving him more sunlight is this through a window or direct sunlight? Birds need UV light for vitamin D synthesis - I'm not sure what the weather is like where you are but where I am it's too cold at the moment for my budgie to go outside and get UV light from sunlight so I am using a UV bulb at the moment.

Re: Need help

Make little cups of planted bird seed and grow your own plants for the bird to eat. Just sit them in the cage or clip them off and clip bunches to the cage bars. Even if they just shred them they will be a benefit. Lauresa and spinach and other greens is a good idea, easy on the fruits because of the sugars. Google or use Youtube about your birds diet. Remember that it is a percentage thing of various sorts. jh
