Question Peanutbutter

All of a sudden Kiwi seems to enjoy peanutbutter (Skippy Natural Creamy)......is this a good or bad thing? I haven't offered it very much and she had only about 5 or 6 licks the last time a couple days ago. She is trying a lot more foods lately........it's only taken about 2 years!! Thank you!!

Re: Peanutbutter

as a treat used sparingly I don't think it would hurt...
talontoys from Birdsnest Specialty
I got Milo the lil spoon foot fiddler, I figure I could add a tiny bit of natural peanut butter for a treat and a fun foot toy.

Re: Peanutbutter

I have heard many conflicting theories about giving a bird peanut butter.
Was browsing different sites, came across a great one, explaining it all, and giving some lovely recipes.
http://www.ehow.com/how_4546185_feed-birds-using-peanut-butter.html
I have never given peanut butter to my African Grey Mishka, after reading the
"safe way" I will give her a little bit, but only as a treat.
Take care, and that of our feathered friends !!!!

Re: Peanutbutter

I give my guys an unsalted saltine lightly spread with peanut butter as treats. They love it.

Re: Peanutbutter

Most commercial peanut butters have more oil, salt and sugar than we realize. Peanut butter is easy to make with a blender or food processer. Use a cup or so of raw (or roasted) unsalted peanuts - organic if you can find them. Put them in a food processor or blender with about 1/2 teaspoon of peanut or vegetable oil, then turn it on. Add a small amount of oil if you need to, but just small amounts - you can always add more then can't take it out once it's there.

You can also use roasted peanuts if they're unsalted for a slightly different flavor.

Re: Peanutbutter

Thank you for all your input........I had read one account that peanutbutter was a nutritional treat, and on another that it wasn't a good idea. I wanted to make sure that she will not get sick. I have only offered it once and there were no ill effects.......my original thinking was a good source of protein and amino acids, with the peanut oil being good for her feathers and any dry skin. I love her so much, I would die if I ever made her sick or hurt her!!

with all of the information out there, it's hard to sort out the good vs. the bad. I'm glad we could help.

Re: Peanutbutter

Attended a parrot meeting about nutrition this weekend. Peanut butter is recommended as ok if it is made from organically grown peanuts. Better is almond butter instead because of vitamin content.

Re: Peanutbutter

Almond butter!!! Wow....never even gave that a thought. I love almonds and I usually get the unsalted roasted.....when I have offered her an almond, she takes it and throws it down! I think I'm going to try almond butter for myself now too......thanks!!

Hi SB
How did the parrot meeting about nutrition go?
Dying to know more about what to feed them, and how much.
Later my friend
