The F-word: Fats are a good thing!
By Dr Jason Crean (extract from an article from Parrot's Fine Cuisine and Nutritional Guide Cookbook)
Essential Fatty Acids are often referred to as the “good” fats and avian requirements are substantial though all fats serve a vital purpose in the diet. EFAs are critical for normal reproduction, feather production and a healthy immune system. Animals require these fats to properly absorb vitamins like A, D, K, and E.
A deficiency in Omega-3’s may cause stunted growth, issues with vision impairment and motor incoordination, and immune dysfunction as discussed above. Omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acids are a bit more readily available in the diet as our birds can easily obtain a sufficient amount in seeds, grains and some nuts.
These fatty acids are required for healthy skin and strong feathers, normal reproduction, and maintaining normal organ function. Deficiencies in these fats may lead to a failure to gain weight, degeneration of liver and kidneys, behavioral disturbances, inability of wounds to heal sufficiently, infertility, poor or abnormal feather development and dry, scaly skin. It’s all about balance when it comes to Omega-3’s and Omega-6’s.

Recently ordered some Go Nuts to go with Chop Sprinkle and on the 1st sitting my 2 dinosaurs (Petz Conure) & (Pale Blue Quaker) absolutely went bananas over them which I was really surprised with. Maybe as the nuts are chopped to more of bite sized treat it appealed more to them but I’m super impressed they liked them on the 1st feeding of them. Overall great product!
