Love and hate...

Sure looks great!

Lol, Willow got her monthly dose of coconut oil... it's hard not to laugh when she's literally running up and down the back/sides of the cage trying to get away from you. And I think she eats about 1/3 of what I get on her, anyway.

But.... it does wonders for dry feet and facial skin, and makes that beak look young again.

Parrot spa day?

Re: Love and hate...

Tom..I'm subscribed to "Mr Max TV". I've been a fan of Max and his parront Dan for years. Dan uses coconut oil on Maxs' "toes toes toes beak beak beak" lol and the oil works well. I've added a small amount to Amys food on occasion also.
Willow? you are a beautiful girl there

Re: Love and hate...

A dose of coconut oil once a month really makes that much difference with feet and beak? How much do you think a conure would require?

Re: Love and hate...

Parrot spa day indeed, Tom! Willow has her back to that white stuff on the ground outside, and is happy as a clam in her nice warm giant nestbox!

Not much I imagine, it helps to melt in your hands a little bit, it's a lot like Crisco until it melts. It helps and it's good for them, I should do it more often.

Young? My cockatoo is only eight and he's got the dry look going. I will use this trick of yours, and thank you for posting it.

Re: Love and hate...

Willow is only (allegedly) 6 or 7. IDK how old she actually is.

Re: Love and hate...

I tried this on Rocky 'Too and he was NOT HAPPY. Emphatically NOT HAPPY. Gave me the stink eye for an hour NOT HAPPY. I offered to let him taste it first. NO. He did NOT want to cooperate. He did not want a spa day for his beak or his toesies. NOT HAPPY.
