Re: Do Sun Conures use Gravel as a Digestive Aide?

    I use only oyster shell grit because it provides the calcium
    benefits and not the indigestable gravel (rock). It was
    believed several decades ago that parrots needed gravel or
    grit for digestion like chickens and turkeys. Provide good
    sources of calcium in cuttlefish bone, powdered
    oystershell,mineral blocks, and broccoli, okra, and other
    greens have calcium. Parrot babies need free access to it
    for good growth and Parrot hens during breeding season.
