    Exotic Fruits?

    Hey y'all! My Red-Bellied has been very into the Avian Organics freeze-dried fruits and veggies. Now that I know she likes them, I was looking into other options for buying since AO is a bit far from me. I found a pack of exotic freeze dried fruits on Amazon that have no added sugars/additives...

    Safety of exotic fruits? (star apple, June plum, maripa)

    Hi everyone, I just had some family fly in from Suriname and they brought along a bunch of interesting and exotic fruits. I'd love to share them with my bird, but I haven't been able to find if some of these fruits were safe for him to eat. I was wondering if anyone here knew if they are safe...

    Grapes safe for birds?

    Hi, I keep hearing a lot of conflicting info on wether grapes are safe for birds. Is it completely safe, safe if the seeds and/or skin is removed or completely unsafe? I have a green cheek conure in case breed is a determining factor

    How much should I feed my canary

    I've had several different reccomending tips on how much to feed my guy. I currently just keep his bowl of food in cage all the time, and put fresh veggies out every day. Haven't had any luck getting him to eat any fruit. I put a quarter of a boiled egg in his bowl once a week. Is this...

    Budgies need to Eat their Fruit and Veggies! How can I make mine love them?

    Hi, I've had my birds for over a year now, but they rarely touched the fruit/veg I put down for them daily. They will, sometimes, clear the fruit bowl (which is separate to the regular seed bowl), but that's rare. Most of the time they'll eat one or two pieces and that's that. They don't...

    Dried Fruit, What's your bird's fave?

    I'm looking to add 1 or maybe 2 freeze dried fruits to my pionus' sprouted seed mix, just to give it a little treat mixed in. I wanted to see if I could find dried acai berries but they only seem to sell them powdered. She's picky and I've bought a lot of fruit and veggies that get snubbed! She...

    Is sucralose okay in small amounts?

    I buy "no sugar added" canned fruit and my indian ringneck is obsessed with the canned mandarins. I only give him maybe 2 at most per week. The oranges are drained completely before I offer him the one on top of the can before I eat the rest, so he doesn't come in contact with my saliva. The...

    How do you get your tiels to eat their greens?

    Tango is a bit of a picky eater, and becoming a bit of a seed junkie. She used to take broccoli and lettuce, but now she doesn't really take any wet food. I've tried her with grape, apples, carrots, corn, strawberries, raspberries, cranberries - she'll shake her head like it's wet and back away...

    What foods do your cockatiels love? (fruit/veg?)

    I'm wary Tango is becoming a bit of a seed junkie. She can be quite picky and is reluctant to eat wet food. She'll nibble on the stems left on grape vines, and will sometimes take broccoli and lettuce. What do your tiels like?

    Getting Scarlet Macaw to Eat Fresh Produce

    Hi all, I apologize if this topic or something similar has already been discussed, but I'm having some issues with getting my big mac to eat fruits and veggies. He's a 17 year-old re-home that I've had for a couple of weeks. He's eating pellets and nuts fine, and shows interest when I present...

    5 little birdies loving their chop

    My favorite thing is watching them devour their chop every morning. Some mornings I spend a lot of time adding fresh fruit/ veggies but it's worth it to watch them run over all excited. I forgot to take the chop out of the freezer last night so I had plenty of time to prep a lot of fresh stuff...

    Where do you buy dried fruit/ veg and treats?

    It's a long story, you don't have to read the whole thing, the main question is at the bottom, thanks! So I started buying golden gourmet treats from my safe bird store. My conure loved the dried green beans and all of my birds love the granola from them. Lately I have been finding bugs I the...

    How do you disinfect your bird's veggies?

    Without using any harsh chemicals of course. Also, do you disinfect fruits like strawberries, etc?

    Wasps in the Aviaries

    Hey guys! It's the end of summer, and my fids are loving the oddly warm weather... But they're also being plagued by wasps! There's clusters of them all over the fruit, they come from miles around as soon as I put the fresh food on the birdie tables in the morning. Idk why, because there's...
