jojo went for a good fly the other day now when she does this i like to leave her to it for a while,

well i noticed she was eating my daughters salt dough thing she had made

should i remove it so she doesn't go near it again ? i know you can get them salt licks for the cage ? it this dangerous for them, she hasn't been near it since

I would remove I am not sure what the dough is made of but I wouldn't take the chance and as far as the salt I would stay away from it traces of salt is not bad for them but salt in excess can interfere with normal growth, produce excessive thirst, weakness and convulsions.

By salt dough do you mean play dough?


It's non-toxic for kids to eat, and i imagine a nibble wouldn't do any harm from a bird. But definitely don't encourage or intentionally allow it. ;)

Reading from many different sources, including a book at my local Barns and Nobels, salt is bad for the bird, so I wouldn't feed it anything with salt on/in it. I personally don't know, but books hardly ever lie =P

I am sure even if she did take a lick/bite she wouldn't even eat it, I bet the taste would be gross! She probably just nibbled it but didn't taste any because she definetley wouldn't like it! :)
