    i just made an order from mysafebirdstore and i didn't get the releaves yet. pickle has started laying eggs again, she laid one and left it. the second one she started sitting on and i managed to replace it with a marble, so now she is sitting on the marble. i fell like now that she is sitting on them, she might lay a clutch (or not more at all) and then stop laying.

    i am thinking about ordering the Releaves and a full spectrum light, i just was wondering if you have some answers for me! first, with her new egg sitting, is it better to remove her from my room while the others are out? i have been doing this and she stopped sitting on the marble and is a little nervous about being away from the flock. i do have her cage half covered though.

    and second, if i get a full spectrum bulb, can i put it in a normal lamp socket, without the shade on of course. my trees are too high to have it hanging over them. does it have to be directly on them or?? i don't know much about them

    That sounds like a good idea if you think that they will eat it!

    That could work but a lot might be wasted. Maybe if I mix in a little with the sprouted seed. If it is wet they wil get more of it than when I put it on dry seeds and it mostly dries on there

    Can you put it in their water? I know they don't drink too much, but they HAVE to drink at some point and although it will be a bit diluted it may help a little still

    Hmm I gues that makes sense. It is a liquid too. You can give it to them orally but I'm not going to force them to eat it!

    Hmm I'm unsure. Do they actually eat it? If they're hulling their seeds I can't imagine they'd get a lot of the supplement I'm a sneaky one with my birds, I sprinkle it on their fresh foods

    it is a vitamin supplement. butch wasn't eating a whole lot at the time, so having a little extra on his seeds was supposed to help. he didn't eat it, but after he died i gave the remainder of the Booster coated seeds to the rest of the flock. i was thinking about buying one of the small packages to mix in with a pound of seed again and mix small amounts with the normal seed just so they can get a little bit more in their diet

    What is the booster? Is it a probiotic?

    i have seen in on mysafebirdstore.com! i have used the Booster before when the vet gave it to me for butch, so i do trust the brand. pickle has been egg free since the 3rd of this month (yay!). do you think it would be dangerous to mix in their food anyway? everyone is in breeding condition now, not like that means everyone is unbalanced, but...
