Foods, etc. Vets Breeders/Bird Links

 

Kindus Food Ratings:

FORBIDDEN: Avocado (including Guacamole!!),
chocolate and caffeine (a metabolite  theobromine is toxic to them - dogs as well reportedly): Tomatos and potatoes (probably because of Solamime alkaloid)

Kindu gets no seeds!!!!

Loves: Peanuts and Almonds - sparingly:

Cinammon Toast Crunch

Fruits and Veggies ( < 10-15% and more veggies than fruits)
Loves: Red Peppers, Carrots, Green beans, Honeydew,
           Grapes, Apple, Orange , broccoli leaves
           chicken soup and pasta
           Frozen yogourt - just a tad once in awhile

In addition to learning how to dunk most foods, as of 1/99, demands that cereal be moistened with a bit of milk !!!

 

OK:  Kale, pasta, scrambled eggs, popcorn


Detests: Peas, red beans, Chicken, banana

Pretty Bird Weaning
Zupreem Parrot Fruit blend
Pretty Bird regular Natural Breeder's
Lafeber's plain- Look dull but somehow really appealing to ZKindu
