    I drink orange juice pretty much every day and Google takes sips from my cup every time. She LOVES orange juice. Is there something bad in it I should avoid? It's not from concentrate, but store-bought. I draw a line at squeezing my own oranges :D

    As long as it is small amounts then it is fine. There are some birds like softbills that can not have citrus because it can cause ISD, but it is fine for birds such as conures.

    Is Google a Cinnamon? Peanut LOVES juice, but you should be aware of the sugar content as well and try to give it in moderation as with anything. Granted, most of the time Peanut won't get too much because I think I love it more than him. XD

    Pita's a juice addict. Apple, orange, cranberry, grape...if it's got fruit anywhere in it, he's all over it....or should I say it's all over him.

    Pixie loves OJ. It's gotten to the point where she recognizes the jug and starts doing her begging dance whenever she sees me getting it out. I always give her a couple of sips whenever I drink it. Lately, I've been trying to use her love of orange juice to my advantage - I've been drawing up a small quantity in a syringe and letting her lick drops of it from the end in the hopes that she'll associate syringes with a yummy treat. That way if I ever have to give her any medications in the future, hopefully it won't be as traumatic for her as it has been for Buddy in the past.

    It's fine in small quantities. Crow loves it, I caught him standing on the side of my glass, drinking orange juice.
