Red face Egg food supplement?

Ok, so....apparently, this is great stuff for putting extra vits into your bird if they don't take to pellets brilliantly. (We'll name no names....CAL)

So along with seeds, fruit and veg, round the diet a bit more.

I have VERY little faith in my local pet shops which is where I was told this.

Just wondering if anyone else can back this up or slam it?

If Cal doesn't take to these pellets then I'm looking at the alternatives including supplements in water.

I mean, she eats a LOT of fruit and veg and has never said no to what I've given her fresh. Apple, orange, grape, carrot,mango (I only tried fresh once then bought dried...jeez...) brocolli,boiled egg, even a touch of chicken etc etc etc. Her seed also has a lot of dried goodness in it like banana, chilli's, pineapple etc....she eats it all.

She also gets millet and has cuttlebone and mineral blocks for her beaky weaky.


Should I quit worrying? Keep with the pellets? Try with the egg food?

Advice would be fabulous as it's the one area I can't seem to settle on alone!

Re: Egg food supplement?

Egg food is good for small birds such as canaries during molt or when breeding, for birds that are larger you can feed them actual eggs,(great source of protien) hard boiled or scrambled, even leaving in some of the shell for a calcium, keep offering pellets, hopefully Cal will try them and like them sooner or later

Re: Egg food supplement?

Thanks Bobby! She does indeed have hard boiled eggs and loves them!

I'll just stick with what I'm giving her then and if she really won't eat the pellets I will just have to get extra vits for her water.
