We have been using BirD-elicious Eclectus and now African Gray food for a couple of years and are extremely pleased. We started because the "Eckies" were in terrible feather from liver damage from many years of a straight pellet diet. Bottom line, the birds have re-feathered. It is forever changing the way to feed your birds. Check it out,
There is a link at the bottom of this page that takes you to BirD-elicious. Do yourself and you bird a favor, click it.
Dear Bird Owners,
As our society grows ever larger, so then does the waist line of our birds. Birds that are sedentary do not burn the food they are taking in by moving from dish to dish. The attached file is an interesting observation by an avian vet, chronicling the the numbers of exotic birds he has seen and the average weight of each type based on his observations.
I checked our hyacinth, Lani and he is to weigh 2.5 pounds, 1144 grams. Now I have to get him on the scale. I'll let you know what he weighs. Check the list for your birds weight.
