Fed bird raisins
by Brenda Barnekow

I fed my new Sun and Nanday Conures a few raisins that people eat, not the ones you buy at the pet store for birds. I had read about the salt and sugar not being good for them, but also read that they love fruits, nuts,and raisins.
The ones I fed them said raisins and I thought they were ok but didn't see that they also had 10 mg sodium, 310 mg potassium, 2g dietary fibers, and 29g of sugar in them. I didn't think about what was in the raisins until after they each had a few of them, and now I am scared to death I may of killed them.
They are about 3 months old and still on one hand feeding per day. Please answer me quickly and tell me they will be ok and if it is ok to feed them regular raisins?
