Is it like diarrhoea? You might want to try a different pellet, when mine eats P15 she has foul smelling loose droppings, it's horrible, you should free feed pellets so always have some in her bowl

Exactly. I give P15 to. And lifetime granules as well, but the problem I think is at the P15. You see, here in Thessaloniki, Greece I cant find pellets ! :cry2: so I have to order from Amazon. But not all the brands can sent in Greece.

Sounds the same as me, what other brands can you get? Does he like veggies? Maybe you could try a seed based diet if you are really stuck, but with the addition of veggies?

It wont go away, i bought a huge box of P15 for my grey & stopped using it obviously, but with her getting older i thought i'd try it last week again, one bowlful gave her diarrhoea for 2 days.

She eats zupreem nut & veggie pellets with no problems, so if you can get something else it would help

NONE ! unfortunately. I told you, here in Greece even in Athens, pellets is luxury I suppose. And from internet sellers don't ship in Greece. Yes, I give her veggies and fruits. the last three days I gave seeds in the morning and tropical lifetime at the night, the situation is much better.

 I will try to find someone, somewhere that can ship your brand.

tnx again.

I wish you happy holidays !!!

Well between the seeds the veggies & the Tropican it's a pretty good diet so don't worry about giving the P15, watch the nuts though, no monkey nuts, and merry Christmas to you :)

about "Harrisons Harrisons High Potency Coarse" says for molting birds, so when i notice that my African Grey parrot is molting, i start feeding him this for a month or?  or he need this in order to start molting? its little tricky.

If you read it says to use high potency all the time for greys. Generally you boost protein when moulting. Some don't use high potency due to bringing hens into brooding. Mine have been on high potency all their lives.

Greys natural diet seems high in fat so I believe this is the reason for hp as a maintenance pellet for greys.

I've used high potency for over 10 years. Do know think it's Jon or Tony are on adult life time as hp made their girl broody.

I'd suggest hp myself. Diet is a bit of a contentious issue. Even pellet manufacturers don't really agree. I tend to think Harrisons are a bit more involved with avian research therefore tend to take there advice on board. Vets also tend to recommend it.

Thanks i just ordered it, yet will take while to get it, like 10 days, since i live super far away :P

btw wanted to ask, compared to the other brands, are these smelly? i used to have "Species Specific African Bird Food with Extra Calcium" these are so smelly and my family complain from them, not using these anymore.

atm using my brother's "Zupreem Nutblend Diet" till my "Harrisons High Potency" arrives.

thanks again.
