Glad to hear you are finding the blogs interesting...Thanks for stopping by with a vote...V4U...Today the campaign blog I will talk more about Cockatiel food and supplements....Millet sprays are very popular and easily prepared. Simply immerse one or two sprays for each pair of cockatiels, i a bowl of warm water for a day, then remove them and wash them thoroughly under running water from the tap, transferring them to a colander if necessary.The cockatiels normally accept the soaked millet greedily,eating all the kernels after a few hours, but always remove the sprays after a day, otherwise they are likely to turn moldy and can threaten the cockatiels' health.You also can feed them dry to your cockatiel.Cockatiels also benefit from a regular supply of green food.This is a valuable source of Vitamin A, which is usually deficient in seed..Suitable green foods they like is Meadow Grass, Spinach or Beet leaves, Canary seed grass and Chickweed...Cuttlefish bone, Grit and Iodine is important in their diet..Cuttlefish bone is a vital part of the diet of the adult cockatiel because its main ingredient is calcium.You may also want to provide a calcium block...Budgerigar grit is suitable for cockatiels it can provide valuable minerals, and oyster shell, in particular, dissolves quite readily in the cockatiel's digestive system, compared with relatively insoluble mineralized grit.Pet shop also sell iodine blocks that you simply fix in place in the cage.They provide the iodine required by the thyroid glands in the neck that influence the cockatiel's metabolism and overall level of activity.Seed is low in iodine.....Hope you are having a great Thursday...Birdie wings hugs to you.....Sam :o)
