Parrotcare - Problem Solving
Hyperactivity is yet another symptom of calcium deficiency. This time
it is normally associated with good levels of vitamin supplementation
but poor calcium supplementation. The B group vitamins ensure the bird's
energy management is working well but the lack of calcium prevents proper
nerve and muscle function.
The most common cause is vitamin supplements (like Daily Essentials3)
being added to fresh fruits and vegetables but calcium being added to
the water. Birds eating large quantities of moist fresh foods drink very
little (fruit is 90% water). So these birds don't get enough calcium.
The solution is to add Calcivet to the food with the vitamins
