Re: How much does the diet influence the lifespan?

Thank you, but I absolutely do not understand the meaning from : "I know many people get upset ...." till the end... I am not a native english speaker and I did not understand your point, but it does not matter. My question is : yes, I bought my beloved budgie handicaped with broken wing and a little curved legs. PRobably he had fragile bones.... Maybe he was older than 6 years and 8 months, I do not know.... but I had him for a half of the time like I had my previous 13 years old budgie. And I can not answer the question : Why. He did not seem to be overbred. One my previous female budgie Blue was probably overbred, she had a liver tumor.... But this accident of my beloved budgie will never go away from my head.

Re: How much does the diet influence the lifespan?

I don't feed all those veggies at once, I rotate. If I have green beans they get them, if I have lettace they get that, I offer about three different veggies a day to all my parrots. I put out a big dish with whatever I'm offering on top of the cage, let the birds out, they run, fly , to check it out. At first I was surprised that the budgies ate everything too
Fresh veggies have vitamin A that is missing in seeds, plus other good stuff.

Interesting and salient points, Gail! Of all the birds I've lived with, the Goffins are most robust. Both parents were wild-caught, and their three offspring are extremely hardy. They were switched to Harrison's later in life, just about one year ago.

Re: How much does the diet influence the lifespan?

I was searching harrisons seeds but didn't find, everything was pellets. Maybe on this side where I was searching weren't available or they aren't at all
