Hey All, just sharing a worry... After I murdered my first 'tiel by sharing my midnight snack of avocado with him (too clever to read the feeding rules the pet shop gave me)... I hand reared my second baby with 'tiel baby porridge and later proper parrot pellets (with the odd treat of millet sprays and sunflower seeds). Now I have a friend who has a darling oldish 'tiel and all his life he's had NOTHING BUT SUNFLOWER SEEDS! My pal is a nurse so she should know about diets but... I babysat him once and worried that he was underweight and had a VERY prominent breastbone. I'm sure his liver is getting fatty and I want to offer to help (I know the bird's not into fruit & veg) but maybe I can share my parrot pellets with her to mix with the sunflower seeds? Isn't the poor bird just eating pure oil???
