@  Birdygirl (J... : (21 October 2014 - 11:31 AM) My name is Billyboy. I'm a 17 month old Indian Lutino Ring Neck.
@  Birdygirl (J... : (21 October 2014 - 11:23 AM) Hi there, This is a story about Billyboy and me.
I rescued him from Malta and brought him home to the UK on the 5th June 2014. Its the first time I have ever owned a bird, so I did lots of research on IRN's. It's been a love affair ever since. He actually adopted me whilst I used to go back and forth to Malta visiting a friend who originally owned him. They didn't get on. We have had the bites and tantrums, but with patience and calmness he has got over them. I didn't react to the bites even though a couple drew blood. I wore garden gloves in the end and he gave up. Now we don't use them. We have a really strong bond and he is very loving towards me. He even let's me cuddle and kiss him. Quite an achievement! So anyone having a bit of trouble with their IRN, keep at it. :0)
@  Bob : (20 October 2014 - 09:53 PM) Hahaha bless her lol

Natural greek yoghurt or natural live yoghurt is best.

 

They have no sugar or flavourings and the probiotics in the live yoghurt can be good for them.

 

I avoid anything that says low fat or low sugar as sometimes they have other hidden nasties in them.

Mine love some organic muesli mixed with a spoonful of natural yoghurt - they get it at the weekend as a treat :-)

Like Lesley said the organic ones are best, the low fat/sugar ones do have other things in that are not that good for our birdies so are best avoided :)

I've not ever thought about giving yoghurt, I just assumed as they can not tolerate lactose / milk / dairy that yoghurt was a no no?

There's lots of lactose free products about that they can have. Mine have cheese, porridge and yogurt all lactose free.

I think it`s just harder for them to digest lactose, though okay in smaller amounts?

 

Ours like strawberry mousse just a few times a year

I will have to try some yoghurt next time i'm in Tesco. Problem is I do have reading glasses and 9 times out of 10 I forget them when I go out. Then the ingredient labels on various foods is so small its impossible to read. Does anyone have a brand that I can look for?

well done Lesly low suger dose not mean no suger and additives can be bad.  Keep as natrual as possible is the best way
