Supplement

Hi,
I'm sure this has been come up many times, but do you give any supplement along with pellets, veggies/fruits? If so what would you recommend? TIA!

Re: Supplement

We only provide supplements when the blood chems suggest the need. A well founded diet that includes fresh Veggies, a healthy wide spectrum of seeds, grains, nuts, and high quality pellet as a supplement will provide everything a Parrot needs.

It is important to become knowledgeable regarding the natural range of your Parrot and the availability of natural dry foods and wet foods as a means of creating a healthy diet for your Parrot. After all, each species will have minor to major differences.

Remember that Eclectus require a highly specialized diet and knowing their specific diet needs will ensure the health of yours. Please search in the Eclectus Forum regarding diet and health needs.

Re: Supplement

I'm very wary about giving a supplement to my birds. A lot of seed mixes and pellets already have an added supplement. Giving a further supplement could cause an overdose which could be potentially fatal. Please make sure you check the pellet/seed mix that you use before giving a supplement.
