Vitamin A Deficiency in Birds
Nutrition - Vitamin A Deficiency in Pet Birds
A seed only diet is often a poor source of Vitamin A. Adding pellets may help, but then how do you know for sure your bird is eating enough pellets? Some healthy food sources for Vitamin A are carrots, yams and sweet potatoes, peppers, broccoli, mangoes, kale, spinach and dandelion greens.
A recommended blended diet for feeding your bird might consist of a really top-notch seed blend, a good pelleted food, and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables to round it all out. Our birds need a nutritious healthy diet just as we do.
