Post by lolorenjo » Mon Jul 02, 2012 11:48 pm

hi to all members..

fruits and veggies that have calcium and lots of good nutrients should do the trick.

The calcium available from cuttle bone is minimal, I use bread soaked in hi calcium milk around breeding time, but it can't stay in the aviary too long.

No Its just Devondale brand Smart Hi Calcium, less fat milk. You have to be careful not to leave it in all day if theres any sun around as milk goes off pretty quickly.

I know this is an old thread, but in case other people read it i wanted to mention that milk or any Dairy products should NOT be given to Ringnecks.
Instead use a Mineral - Calcium Block supplementary to the normal diet of Seed or/& pellets and fruit n veg.
