I almost didn't come in here the board has been so quiet. I
sent Bob a note a month ago about redirecting messages.
First thing I think of with the yellow feathers is diet
deficiency and of course that would be overall vitamins as
Michael said. While some of the mutations do have a tad more
yellow the 'vibrant' to me is a warning. An avian vet visit is
always a good idea.
I wouldn't hesitate to put him on all the fresh foods available
asap and have them in front of him throughout the day. Too many
of our feathered friends have never had wholesome foods and of
course I don't know if this is the case. I would especially get
this guy going on sprouted seeds. Those tiny sprouts are so
very healthy for our birds.
Every day of every week we start out with broccolli and romaine
lettuce plus 2 or 3 other veggies. Another feeding later in the
day has a couple others plus the treats of cheerios or chex
cereal or gerbers veggie or fruit puffs throughout the day. This
is in addition to seeds and a few pellets. I truly do not
believe pellets are good for our birds if fed too many.
you can clik on the link to go to Lexicon of Parrots/search/
type in monk/clik on monk parakeet for the 4 mutations. I don't
feel it is up to date with my tiny minis not there but it's good
reading. One pair here only has mini's that weigh about 90'ish
grams including my own Lilo now 2 1/2 years old.
Thanks Michael :-) My daughter has q eggs in the aviary and is
excited with hatchings to take place just after the first. Her
birthday is the 3rd so no doubt one will hit that day.
I will do another post about sprouts.
