Re: Breeding Eclectus Problems


Dave... relax, my man. Chill. Deep breaths. Slow your roll. Have you considered that maybe... just maybe... you're the one who's getting a wee bit uptight, here? Look, here's what you said:

So no, you never once came out and said those seeds should replace fresh foods. True. But you also never said how much of the diet should consist of those seeds, either. This isn't a dig on you, but since this thread is focused, in large part, upon the proper care of the ekkies under the OP's care, is it so wrong for any of us to seek to clarify what is best for said ekkies?

Try not to take things so personally, Dave. We're all here because we want what's best for our birds, right? Look, you obviously love your flock. I can both respect that and identify with it. It seems as though you feel like you've got the whole bird diet bit nailed down, though. If so, that's okay. You're always free to ignore anything you see here that you feel doesn't really apply to you and your flock. We all do what we feel is best for the birds under our care.

Personally, I don't purport to be a know-it-all. Quite the opposite, actually. While I'm confident in what I do know, I'm very much aware of how much more there is for me to learn. This is a road, a journey, and we're all on it together. Everyone, including you, has something to contribute. That's the strength of community.

So enough of all this fussing and such. Let's pass the peace pipe and get back to the actual purpose of this thread, eh?
