    Michael,

    I don't know if you remember me but I can't find my
    original post. You had asked me to let you know what the
    necroscopy results were on my parrolet. He died from
    cirrhosis of the liver. This was caused by aflatoxins in
    the seeds. They are in the grains and legumes. This is
    common from what I have been told and you can't see it by
    the naked eye. I'm starting my birds on millk thistle.
    Hopefully this will help if my other birds have this also
    and maybe prevent it from happening.

    I'm a little upset because the vet didn't tell me about
    it. He told me there was nothing I could do. I'm the one
    that read about it and asked him if it would be ok and if
    it could possibly help. He told be yes it could and
    wouldn't hurt my birds. My love birds are all still doing
    good along with our pet cockatiel. I think they must be
    tougher that parrolets. I even give the wild birds the
    seeds I empty every day. There is alway seeds left and I
    hate to throw them in the trash. I put them out for the
    wild birds. I've probably killed some of them also. I'm
    going to check into a different diet possibly that leaves
    grains and legumes out. I don't know I have alot of
    reading to do. The vet did say that it is in what human's
    eat also. I had read that the FDA had approved so much
    can be in what we eat. He said that they run corn under a
    black light. This apparently shows it. Maybe I should
    just get a black light. This should be an essential part
    of every breeds supplies.

    Thanks alot,

    Lyn

    Thanks alot,

    Lyn
