Well I've only been a member since Feb. this year (2015). I've gotten a wealth of good information from a variety of seasoned members. So I go out and get a digital scale so I can weigh my fids. First to be weighed; Storm, my military macaw. She weighs 882 grams, the mean is 896 grams, the range 810 - 985 grams. I'm wondering should I be giving more fat in her diet? She appears happy, healthy, and is very active. She eats 3 nuts, 1/2 cup Zupreem natural pellets, 1/2 cup diced fruits/veggies and 1 tablespoon of treats most days. Through out the week she may receives 1-2 tablespoons: of pasta raw/ cooked, beans cooked, hot breakfast cereals and ever so often cooked chicken or egg plus a tiny bit of red palm oil or coconut oil. Recently have been reading about chop, plans are to invest in a food processor. Well I did not weigh the other birds. I'm to scared!
