    Roudybush & Supplements?

    I finally got my cockatiels to eat Roudybush Pellets (crumble). They are also picking at the Zupreem Pellets. I read that if a bird is on a pellet diet, not to give any supplements, cuttle bone, or mineral block. I have been giving mine all of these. Should I take these extras out of the cage? (They are feeding new born babies at this time)

    I keep the calcium block and a cuttle bone. I never have givien vitamins in the water, they get fresh stuff.

    I have also read that too in all the liturature that comes from roudybush and zupreem. According to them the extra calcium and minerals that are injested from these items can cause health issues because of excess the birds are injesting when the foods are already balanced with those things. So their liturature says. I do not acutally know. I guess they would know since they have been studying the long term health effects on birds for many years.
