it is not mine to post, so without breaking copyright I cannot do that.

 

As for the brocolli, it is not brocolli that causes the problem, but rather methods that are used to keep brcolli fresh. One thing that we must be aware of is that organisations use different methods to keep vegetables "fresh". Chemicals may wash off the skin of some products, but things like brocolli and mushrooms I suppose will absorb some of these chemicals. Birds have a very weak immune system compared to us. Think of the "canary down the mine shaft" analogy. The canary would keel over and die due to the gas whilst we may not even smell it yet. Same with some foods.

 

If you are giving veges, ensure they are washed, thoroughly, buy them only from local producers where you know they have not been stored and contaminated, buy organic if possible, or grow your own. I am going to investigate growing brocolli and spinach, as I know my birds love it.

Dave why would you dose the birds,seeing as you know

where they came from,fair enough to leave them in the holding pen.

It gets to me,every time I see, breeders dosing there birds for nothing.

Now if one was to,starts to look fluffy,yes a dose of Vitim C,.

Broccoli has been sprayed with chemicals to keep it fresher for longer And this can be harmful to your birds... That is why alot of breeders are no longer doing broccoli and other vegetables too from supermarkets... Other products which may have been affect are the prepacked salad mixes, EG crunch salad, spring salad, etc, those prepacked items...

 

Hope that helps... :rofl:

 

 

Great to see they all made it safe Dave... :D

Because

* number 1, yes I know where they come from, but you always have to be careful.

* number 2, they have been travelling for many hours with other birds, I know personally that there were other birds on the flight and they were in a travel cage that at one point was sitting below and next to my birds travel cage, and

* number 3, it is always a good practice to get into, and it is one that will not hurt them.

 

Whilst I am directing this to you specifically Macka, can I once more request to see some of your birds or can you at least point me to a link where you posted some pics?

I also suggested to Dave that he doxy the birds as there were birds from two differing aviaries travelling together.

I did write a long story,about how I look

after, my birds but I decided it was pointless.

I have never used Doxy or any of the antibionic.

Form the Vets.In the last 12 to 18 months I would

of 3 birds unwell & they were removed,when I notice

they looked fluffed up.This the end.

PS The vets & the meds sellers love you all,

but your birds if they could talk,would tell

you to lay off all the drugs. :rofl:
