Are pitted dates okay for a parrot? I was looking at dried fruit at the grocer and , except for the dates, they had either sugar or a sulfer added.
I don't like the dried fruits in parrot mixes; hard as a rock and Topper won't even attempt to eat. Doesn't care for the banana chips either.
We will soon have an organic store, Mom's Organic, so I hope to find more choices there. Topper has played with a grape and ate strawberry slices; hasn't tried the blackberries as yet. Loves carrot and dark, curly lettuce. And, I offered almond chips today. Just a bit.
Trying to wean him off the Caitec pellets...they crumble so badly. He is eating the Roudybush small pellets. Next time I need to buy the medium size.
A parrot rescue, here in Maryland, uses Roudybush and their birds look great. I am thinking of volunteering one day a week there. It is a 1 and 1/2 hour drive from my home. But, I think I would enjoy it and learn so much.
Well, didn't I ramble on and off topic?
So, dates okay?
