She always gets some millet, sunflower seed, a kind of seed mix for small parrots. We always cut them fresh apple and carrot too. And also give them some chickweed. And we hang a millet thing up and a kind of fruity and seeds hanger for parrots. And she also has fresh water. And sometimes we put vitamins in her water too.how old is your sweetheart? What has been fed to her?
There is big connection with diet abd development of this .
We unfortunately don't know what she got as a baby. We received her a year ago, so that's why we don't know more and exact informations. :/What they were fed as babies is also important. For such young ones to have issues , I wouldn't be surprised if an improper formula or feeding was used
Thank you! And what would you recommend instead of those? We also have other parrots too, and they're doing fine. So we'd like to change in this case to be sure everyone will stay fine.it looks like your lil baby definitely needs a diet switch! i would definitely cut the sunflower seeds and millet from the regular diet, only use those for training as they are very high in fat and can and do cause liver problems and things such as gout. do your birds fly? what type of perches are in the cage?
Alright, thank you so much!if you mean wooden sticks like dowels, i would switch those out with natural branches to avoid what's known as bumblefoot, it can look similar to what your gal has happening.
as for food i reccomend fresh fruit and veg daily and pellets as well! pellets contain a lot more nutrients and a lot less fat than seed. its good they have room to fly! definitely keep an eye on the others and possibly take a look at their feet if you can
