Comments On - Cranberries & Birds

I prepare fresh (or frozen) cranberries by adding 1/4 to 1/3 cup organic sugar, plus one cup of water, with 1 pound of cranberries. Boil about 10 minutes, and cool. I keep it in the fridge, and also eat it myself. SO much healthier than the sugary canned stuff.

I enjoy cranberries and offer them to my parrotlet.
She shakes them away after a quick sample.
I keep offering and she keeps sampling.

Our blue-fronted amazon loves cranberries. He has eaten them for years but I was not aware of how beneficial they were for them. Thanks for the info.

Nice to get this just at this time of year -- thanks! I'm going to give the fresh ones a try first and see how they go. I'd love to hear what's working for anyone else!

It sounds interesting, but I have my doubts with unsweetened cranberries. I may cook some in a bit of orange juice to see if they'll eat them.

Great article! :~) I have 5 Cockatiels & 1 budgie. What amount of cranberries would you recommend I offer to them in addition to their daily diet? What nutritional value do carrot tops & carrots hold for birds? Carrots brighten their colors.

Thanks for the article; I'm always looking for ways to balance my bird's diet, and I appreciate knowing what to offer, and what to avoid.
