Complete Psittacine by Eb Cravens

Variety is ‘the spice of life’ or so goes the old saying as first spoken a couple of hundred years ago by poet William Cowper. And for psittacines in captivity, it also rings quite true, especially when it comes to their food dish!

April and I spend a fair amount of time trying to design a daily feeding regime that is both highly nourishing for our birds and interesting for them. After all, the lack of stimulation and limited foraging opportunities in domestic caged parrots is somewhat ameliorated by giving them varied or extraordinary food offerings.

A case in point. I am not a big fan of in-shell nuts for my flock. The quality of said nuts, whether almonds or pecans, etc. has been declining over the past few decades and I have felt for years it is more cost efficient and safer when it comes to bad nuts to just buy top quality shelled nuts and feed those. But a week ago, I was at the local health food store and I happened on a tray of organic in-shell walnuts that looked really fresh and good. So I bought a couple of dozen for the parrots.
