Vitamin A Supplement

Hello Everyone,

I have 2 Lovebirds, called Mally and Boo. I am interested in getting them a Vitamin A supplement as they have a vitamin A deficiency. I was wondering if someone could recommend a supplement to me? I have been trying to get them to eat Fruits and Veggies with a high Vitamin A. But unfortunately they haven't taken to it to well. Thanks in Advance.

Try to supplement with natural foods if you can and persevere, I know it can be frustrating but it's better than over dosing on a supplement

Have you tried Birdy Mash, Birdy Bread. Or cooking what I called birdy treats.
I found in the past a lot of birds will eat these and you can slip good foods in that they may not eat on its own.

I have to agree with Catalindee. I try to stay away from anything that is not natural.
Take heart and persevere.

A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.

Thanks everyone for all of your useful help. I am going to try and see if they like Birdy Mash. (Fingers Crossed they like it.) I will post results here once I give it to them, no doubt there are a few different recipes I can try.
