New CAG plucker
« on: November 27, 2015, 10:32:59 PM »

Tomorrow I'm adopting an African Grey with a plucking problem, I called parrotdise perch and talked to a specialist about parrot nutrition and plucking problems and she gave me some great ideas to stop the plucking. Like using bene-bac, figs, mineralized water, a aloe/water bath mist

I'm so annoyed I've been ordering food online all this time and then I just realized that Harrison's a vet brand, called my vets and they can order it for me, no more delivery charge yay!

So I'm super excited this has been my dream for a long long time :)

So question I know calcium is an issue with greys, what do you CAG owners feed your feathered friends, I chose the high potency Harrison's, although she's on zupreem right now. Organic sprouts/soaked seeds, mash, fruits and veggies, I ordered a five pound bag of the Harrison's, and some of their treats and bene-bac

Missed this in regards to calcium think the conclusion is they don't need extra so much but are more susceptible to imbalances. This link gives a good low down. Winged Wisdom Pet Bird Magazine - Calcium, Phosphorus & Vitamin D3 in Diets for Parrots and Birds http://www.birdsnways.com/wisdom/ww22eii.htm

I've never supplemented but have blood work done yearly. For me and many avian bulb is the key. There is a study where the bulb equaled out dietary differences. The bulb gives them the opportunity to make vit d as and when needed. Calcium requirements for me have generally come from Harrisons though do top up occasionally with egg shell and cheese mainly as Willow is on the low end of acceptable. Hoping this year he's budged up a little.

Mine also get chop and palm oil

Thanks so much! I'm getting the bulb but waiting on the bird store for ordering, they are getting a new type of bulb in that's supposed to be much better then the rest they've had before :)
