shane and fish (the bird)

My rule of thumb when introducing something new that the birds have never had .... clean the paper and watch their poop ,any big change in the poop is a sign .
The only things I dont feed them nuts and chocolate and no milk products
I HAVE FED JUST ABOUT EVERY FRUIT , remove seeds and or cores ...... I am uneasy about watermelon as it will forment in the human stomach what will it do to birds lol
but I do watermelon sparlingly alone with no other fruit or food .
I do rice , pasta , eggs , fish , fruit , chicken vegies , bread , cereal .... not in big portions a teaspoon ...I let them taste my cranberry muffin last night , oh they loved it and poop is still runny and white .
if anything changes the color of the poop , like nuts have made their poop black ...... then I wont feed it again .
because they are meant to be liquid eaters I only give small amounts .
They are all happy and healthy

after 3 months i spot the wet food all together and keep them on dry , they will wet there own food , trust me .
protein is needed but given them mealworms instead , they go bizerk over them trust me , ive been breeding Lories since i was 14 and im 37 in a few days time
make sure you go for a walk and pick wattles and bottlebrushes for your lori , its the season to do it now
avoid citrus NO AVO's it will kill them watermelon is ok , but rockmelon is better for them
lots of silver-beet , and also frozen corn cobs they love them what i do is pierce the corn whist its still frozen through the soft middle bit and string it through with Hessian string and hang it in my kids cages , this is great to do if your going to work it stops them fretting when you leave they don't really like carrot if you don't grate it but apple and pears are a fave also strawberries and kiwi , but only a little bit , also go around your neighbourhood and see if people have go loquat ( sp??) trees , they are in season now and lori's love them .
