Dr. B, I usually answer questions, and now I have one of my own. I have two Red-Lored Amazons over 30 years old, and was wondering if I can use the Red Palm oil on their pellets and how much I would use. The birds are fed 2 level tablespoons of Harrison's Adult Lifetime per day, in the evening, and there is always food for them to munch on during the day. Would the oil go rancid if put on their food at their dinner and left until around lunchtime next day? Tracie was good enough to give me a large sample of the oil, and I use it in their Birdy Bread mix, and just don't know about putting it on food.

So, question is how much for each Amazon on their daily two tablespoons of food and how long before it becomes rancid?

Thank You So Much, and have a warm, wonderful Holiday Season with your family and friends,
Linda, Eli and Stella

Sunshine Factor and Harrison's High Potency pellets
by: The Vet

If your birds are eating Harrison's High Potency, then you should not supplement with Sunshine Factor because it is already in the food. If they are on Adult LifeTime, then you can supplement with the Sunshine Factor according to the directions on the bottle. Your birds should be eating 80% pellets, and 20% treats. Do not leave the treats in the cage free choice, but do leave the pellets free-choice and give treats in small amounts 2-3 times daily.
