Hi, we just wanted to thank you for the Hagen Tropican recommendation!
We ordered the sticks.
Our macaw just loves them and they smell amazing!
I feel so good knowing that I’m feeding them healthy food.
I had no idea that Zupreem had sugar in it and all that color can’t be good.
We also ordered the Prime Vitamin per your recommendation.
Julia M. asks,
Top of the morning! Could you tell me what a “good” diet is for a three-year-old Eclectus?
I have had him since the middle of his weaning.
Editors note ~ about 20% of parrots are sexually dimorphic meaning you can tell the sex by the bird’s color. Males are green, females are red, so Julia can use the pronoun “him” with certainty. Endnote
Jane M. is concerned,
Our Elenora cockatoo is 24 yrs old.
Hailey has lost 27 grams in one week.
Editors note ~ the species Elenora cockatoo weigh an average of 475 g, cockatiels weigh about 100g for comparison. Endnote
We weigh her weekly.
She’s really not eating and if she does, it’s only a few bites.
I look forward to getting your email every Sunday and reading it has become as much a ritual as the old Sunday paper.
And now I have a question for you.
Thunder and Lightning are my bonded parakeets.
I’ve had them for years.
Last summer I saw more and more breeding activity, so I bought a box and let nature take its course.
Thunder laid four eggs, one of which was fertilized.
