Has anyone used this Mediterranean Bread from Tops. I ordered some and really don't know how much to give my grey per day or even use it. Do you have info on it?

I also have a question on Coconut Oil... I heard it was suppose to be good for the bird also.. But reading I can't find out what kind you give and how much per day.

I was told hemp seed was good also for essential acids. True or not??

I also was told essential acid oil was good for seizures?

I am taking my Grey for a well check up and have so many questions, but I also like other opinions.

All are rescues- had to leave their previous homes for 'reasons', are still in contact with them :)
Await the wellnes-check-results before you start adding all kinds of stuff to the diet?


The usual issue with african greys is a calcium-deficieny (more dark green veggies etc. will fix that of course, but you can also feed eggshell once in a while)

Perjo loves both styles of Tops birdie bread. I add a little buttermilk b/c Tops recipe is a very dry mix, doesn't blend well with just an egg.

When I make birdie muffins I put in a small tea spoon size of "100% pure virgin coconut oil" into the mixture. I use those paper muffin cups so as to not have to scrub the pan afterwards,and I also smear just a touch of coconut oil on the papers so the muffin doesn't stick. I also read the oil is good for the birdies.

Christa is correct about greys and calcium deficiency. Smokey suffered once from low calcium (the first time I ever heard about it).
She acted drunk...was stumbling all over the floor dragging her arms. I rushed her to her CAV and he gave her a shot and within minutes she was back to her old self. He had a calcium liquid supplement to add to her water daily. she never had an episode again.
