Sad News
Marden David died on January 13th, 2014, just two days after his third hatchday. He was found to have a systemic aspergillus infection, most likely from something he ate. We normally feed only human quality foods, but had been given a couple of bags of cheap food that included peanuts. I thought I picked all the peanuts out, but it is possible that he found one I missed or that another ingredient in the feed was contaminated. African Greys are much more susceptible to these infections. Please be very careful what you feed your bird. Cheaper seeds with animal grade feeds are very often contaminated with "acceptable" levels of aspergillus. I cry every day over the loss of my boy. I wish I had just thrown this cheap food right in the trash. Never again.
