Vitamin Supplements - What do you use?

Recommended Posts

Ok, for those who don't know i have a Senegal and a CAG. I have been doing a bit of reading and see that quite a lot of people supplements their parrots food/water with vitamins etc.

I don't do this with mine :? Should i be? And what should i be giving them?

They have a cuttlefish in their cage at all times, and they get fresh fruit/veg (Well mainly veg as they seem to prefer that!)

Birds that are in good health a fed a balanced diet only need minimal additional vitamins. It is breeding birds or birds that have been poorly cared for, or recovering from illness that need extra.

You can either use soluble vitamins or powders which can be sprinkled on moist foods.

We use Kelp(Seaweed powder) and/or Psittamix.

We were advised when we bought our senegals to give them a small amount of calcivet and a sprinkle of powder called daily essentials twice a week. We have done this religiously since we bought them but my friend who owns a senegal does'nt bother with them as he says the bird does not need them due to having a balanced and varied diet.
