Cage life is generally a prison life for parrots. To make an explanation on this matter, the cage bird is a bird whose freedom is restricted. In some situations in which caged birds balance themselves in terms of minerals and protein in natural life, they also make up for the protein or carbohydrate deficiency. In such shortcomings, she searches for some food that her creator has bestowed and is able to heal herself. Since cage birds unfortunately do not have such an opportunity, you can meet the carbohydrate deficiency with the recipe we will give below. Cage birds may not complete their protein and carbohydrate deficiencies in a balanced way with the seeds and feeds we provide. Especially if we list some causes of disease in cage birds;
- Poor hair growth
- developmental disability,
- Decrease in egg size,
- Lack of melanin pigment in black-colored feathers,
- Increased susceptibility to bacterial, viral and fungal diseases,
- Decreased reproductive success
- body fat increase,
- High death rate.
- 1 potato,
- 2 tablespoons of rice,
- 2 tablespoons of pasta,
- 2 tablespoons of oats,
- 2 tablespoons of cereal.
Throw 1 peeled potato into the water you will boil in a pot. Before the potatoes are completely soft, add the same pot of pasta and rice and bring it to a boil. After boiling, drain the water thoroughly in a strainer and leave it in a corner to cool. After it is completely warm, cut the potato into small cubes and mix it with pasta and rice. You can add two spoons of oats and cereal to this mixture and give it to your parrot.
Fat Free Yogurt (Light Yogurt)
It will be extremely beneficial for the health of your parrots to give 1 teaspoonful of plain (healthier if prepared at home) fat-free yogurt once or twice a week.
Chamomile Or Fruit Tea
While preparing this tea, you can benefit from dried fresh chamomile, different dried fresh fruits that you make yourself at home, or you can get them ready-made from herbalists. You can also benefit from this type of ready-made tea bags sold in the market. Unsweetened fruit or chamomile tea, which you can brew by boiling plain water, is very healthy for parrots.
