    Red Palm Oil

    How many times can you give red palm oil to your Grey? I mix it in Brody's food everyday and he loves it. Is that okay? What does the red palm oil do?
    Thanks!

    Red Palm Oil

    hi Lisa,
    The recommended daily amount should be no more than 1/2 a teaspoon.Personally i feed it every other day.The palm oil has a high anti oxident value & is an excellant source of beta carotenes which is converted in to vitamin A.It can improve feather condition,allowing new feather to grow in strong & glossy,it also has been suggested that it aids some greys to decrease the need to pluck.It aids in breeding, and generally promotes overall good health.

    Red Palm Oil

    I feed the red palm oil every day, I only use 1/4 teaspoon, I mix it in their morning oatmeal with a little baby food veggie, she eats it right up also.:P

    Red Palm Oil

    Josey did not much care for the palm nut itself, but I haven't given up on that either, but with the oil at least I know she is getting some of it in her every day.

    Red Palm Oil

    here is one link..you will need to scroll down the page if you have an ebay account you can but it off there as the postage is cheaper, also try northern parrots on the internet,if you order from a bigger company perhaps place a bigger order for other items to as the P&P is a fixed price

    Red Palm Oil

    Fot the US people---
    Another way of getting it is

    Type in Swansonvitamins.com

    When it opens find a search area that lets you type in a product

    Type in Red Palm oil.

    Check them. You will see a picture of a jar which contains 16 ounces.

    Price is $5.99. Price is best around in US and even if you buy 2 or more jars, it still costs the same S/H<br><br>Post edited by: Dave007, at: 2008/03/22 04:28

    The palm oil has a high anti oxident value & is an excellant source of beta carotenes which is converted in to vitamin A.It can improve feather condition,allowing new feather to grow in strong & glossy,it also has been suggested that it aids some greys to decrease the need to pluck.It aids in breeding, and generally promotes overall good health.Palm Nuts are a nutritious natural food of the african grey, it is the fruit of the African oil palm which grows throughout tropical Africa
    Pine nuts are a big favorite, i use them as a reward or as treats.
