A Month with No Pellets

Am I going crazy? Maybe. But I decided to give it a try anyways. So Welcome to 2018! Today is January 2nd, 2018 and I have a very low bag of pellets so I decided why not try a month without pellets. Obviously this doesn’t apply to my Lorikeets as they will always get their nectar and since I don’t give them any sort of pellets, this will be nothing new. I will be trying to introduce more human food into the lorikeets’ diet but it doesn’t matter if they eat it or not as they will still get their regular meals.

They started their day with their “Shreddies” cereal, then they had a fruit mix and now for dinner hard boiled eggs with lightly boiled carrots.

I have also decided that for the month of January, I want to focus on improving their beaks, feathers and bones. I’ll be attempting this by making sure everyday their diet will include something that will improve those parts. So Today it was eggs and carrots. These two items are said to improve their bones, beaks, feathers and vision. Very excited to see if I will be able to see a difference in their beaks and feathers by the end of this month.

Tomorrow for their fruit mix I will do apples, blackberries and blueberries as they all help with the 3 areas I’m interested in improving. Will my attempt work? I have no idea but nothing tried, nothing gained. This means more work in the kitchen for me, I think I’m up for the challenge. Wish me luck!
