Re: Yogurt

My amazon likes yogurt, but only gets a very little bit, once, maybe twice a month. My ringneck loves string cheese, but very small amounts, not very often. Parrots are lactose intolerant. (correct me if I am wrong.) So small amounts, at least for my guys, don't seem to affect them.

Re: Yogurt

Im lactose intolerant. We have special milk with no lactose. Would that be ok to feed conures?

Re: Yogurt

So am I, my amazon loves to eat cereal with me in the morning, but I still don't give him the milk.

Re: Yogurt

Yogurt is fine to give our birds in moderation. For some it is a great treat!

Re: Yogurt

Mishka loves his yoghurt, has it as a treat before training each night, a tiny weeny bit. He does not take treats whilst training his choice.

Re: Yogurt

I have given my parrots Yukult as a probotic. Even a 1 day old chick will get a drop in their formula to help kick off a healthy gut.

Re: Yogurt

I used to do the samething like Pedro does. I give the chicks yogurt as well to kick off good stomach bacteria.

Re: Yogurt

Found this so I wanted to bump it, I have considered giving Perjo yogurt but have not done so yet due to the concerns of galactose.

Any new definitive info on if we really should be feeding yogurt to our FIDs and if so a SPECIFIC yogurt?
