Hello again Just wanted to check in with anyone that has or have had adult sparrows before. I am always scared that he is not getting tbe best nutrition and would love some feedback to learn what I can do to improve his health and diet and to hear what the rest of you are doing. Since there are not many resources (that I have been able to find) online about raising adult sparrows, I try to offer a variety. Here is a look at what I offer Kiwi, my 5yr old House Sparrow Fresh water 2x day, morning and afternoon. He has 3 food dishes... all seed options look like a mash of the same seeds slapped with a picture of different birds on the front...so i dunno what is best. Daily: Dish 1 - half Hagen budgie seed and mixed with half mixed budgie type seed mix meant for wild birds from bulk store Dish 2 - hagen canary seed mixed finch seed Dish 3 - Avian Organics bitty bird blend ( appears to be his fav) He also gets 3 tiny foraging dishes that are covered with different thicknesses of toilet paper/paper towel he has to rip into to get to... in those dishes can be salad, cucumber, zucchini, celery, once in awhile piece of nut (almond, pistachio or cashew) or piece of baked bird bread mix. Lately, because im too busy in the morning, I just give him a tiny bit of his daily cooked mash. Normally, I would only offer this in the evening once I am home and they come out of their cages. He is a carb-o-holic and I worry it may be too much or could be spoiling him off eating his seeds. Some nights, he appears to be starving when I offer it, even though he gets fresh seed every morning. He prefers to pick out the pasta, quinoa or oats out of it. This mash is made up of, Avian Organics veggie harvest mash, little wings buffet, busy day mash, diced carrot I toss in, organic quinoa, and organic quick oats. Sometimes, I sprinkle alfalfa or calendula or harrions high potency mash on top as it cools. He hates the taste of red palm oil no matter how hard I try to hide it in his food, he wont eat it. Are there different flavour options for red palm oil? Daily, he gets fresh cucumber, zucchini, mixed salad greens, celery or carrots. Once a week or every 2 weeks or so, i will offer hard boiled eggs or share my scrambled eggs, which i only put coconut oil in the pan to prevent sticking and will put water in the eggs in place of milk etc. I offer cooked egg shells everytime I make eggs, but toss them after 2 days. Do cooked shells go bad? I offer fruits maybe once or twice aweek, apple, pear, mango, cantaloupe, grapes, peaches, or watermelon. And everynight before bed he gets 2 freeze dried mealworms, that he loves. I have tried Harrisons pellets in the past as another side option. He does not seem to care for them. I also offer all these things to my dove, along with his regular Hagens dove seed, I do not offer Harrisons pellets because he just doesnt drink as much water as he would need to if he ate pellets. My dove (Baby) is very picky, but lately he has also been picking at the mash and veggies so thats good. Of course I would love diet tips for him too Sorry its so long, thank you for reading!! Tips, suggestions?? Thanks!
