Re: New to caiques need some advice

Yes, watch the Iron-rich foods, as birds cannot handle much Iron at all, and Iron Storage Syndrome is typically fatal once they have it...

Also, as far as fresh fruit goes, you should avoid any and all Citrus fruits such as oranges, grapefruit, lemons, limes, and also Tomatoes, or anything else that is very high in Vitamin C. Vitamin C enhances the body's absorption of Iron, and this is often the reason birds develop Iron Storage Syndrome, because they are fed oranges or tomatoes all the time, or they are given orange juice every day...Once in a while is fine, but max maybe 1-2 small portions a week and that's it.
