    Bird Safe Cage Cleaner

    Thank you all for your replies. With the f10 and the clean and safe, could they be sprayed whilst the bird is still in the cage? I have the clean and safe, but haven’t been confident to use it whilst George is in the cage- even though I wouldn’t spray it anywhere near him, just incase it could...

    Bird Safe Cage Cleaner

    Hi everyone, George is getting tamer, but still won’t come out the cage unless I towel him which really stresses him (and me) out and I only do it if I REALLY have to. So far, because I can’t get him out to clean it without him in, I have only been using boiling water and a sponge scourger to...

    Raw Peas

    Thank you! George loves raw sugar snap peas, but for some reason I wasn’t sure if he would be able to eat these raw. Bit of a silly question really!!

    Raw Peas

    Hi everyone :) Could the peas in here be eaten raw? My George loves raw carrot but wasn’t sure if I could give him the peas without being cooked too? Thanks :)

    Parrot Friendly Smoothie

    I’d like to make one myself, I was just unsure whether I could put a little bit of juice in it and if so, which juice. As I was thinking if I make it with water it may just turn into a very runny mess! I’ll look at the ingredients next time I go shopping, it’s some of the preservatives they use...

    Parrot Friendly Smoothie

    Is there any such thing? George loves (certain) fruit, which I know he shouldn’t have unlimited amounts of, but is a lot less keen to try vegetables and I know they’re obviously very good for them to have alongside seed/ pellet. He loves red peppers and radish and tolerates some carrot and had a...

    Hari Pellets

    Thats what I’m hoping. I adopted a amazon parrot 3 weeks ago and they come to the food bowl to eat when he is eating so I’m hoping that they will start to try some fruit and veg when they see that he is eating his as he is quite good at eating (although he’s not a massive lover of veg ). All I...

    Thank you for your help. I’ll have a look into some better seeds and will get them without sunflower seeds. I’ll definitely keep trying with the veg and use your ideas- I keep thinking that the more I try, then one day they must want to try a bit but so far it’s just not happening!

    The smell is horrible! Would you agree that seeds are ok for cockatiels? Even ones that are so fussy and won’t touch veg/ fruit? And if so which seed would you recommend? Thanks :)

    Hari Pellets

    Thank you! I can’t stand the smell of them either what seed mix would you recommend? I have just read so much how seeds are bad and it should be a pellet diet that I worry. Mine literally will not touch any fruit or veg, they won’t even go near it to chuck it out of the bowl, even if I put...

    Hi, my cockatiels are extremely fussy and have been fed on shop bought seed mix (the stuff that you scoop out of a barrel) for the 5 years that I’ve had them as this is what I was told by the shop I got them from was ok to feed. It wasn’t until I started looking into what to feed my mealy amazon...

    Beans

    Yes it’s a can of mixed beans with kidney beans, black eyed beans,green beans, borlotti beans and haricot beans along with sweet corn, red peppers and chickpeas. If I was eating them, I’d just warm them through as obviously they’re pre cooked and soaked and I just wasn’t sure if parrots were...

    Beans

    Are these tinned beans ok to feed my George? And if so how long do I need to cook them for/ do they need washing? Also, can I feed tinned peas in water? Or do they have to be of the frozen variety? Thank you :)

    Eggs

    Thank you, do you just hard boil them for the same amount of time you would it you were eating them or do you do them for a bit longer? I just wasn’t sure if they could all eat the white and the yolk or if only the yolk was beneficial. I’m hoping that they like them- my cockatiels will eat...

    Eggs

    I’m wanting to give George and my cockatiels (who I can’t imagine for a minute will eat it) eggs this morning as I’ve read that protein is good for them every so often and as George has a tail feather growing, I’ve also read protein is good for feather regrowth. My question is, for 3 birds- one...
