Clever Birds Australia

My aim is to help people and their birds through advice and information. Birds are very clever. Read this blog to learn tips to make you bird clever!, Hi my name is Kim. I keep a variety of very Clever Birds! I keep Australian native and exotic parrots. Cockatiels I guess fill up more space than any others in my garden and bird room. I show my cockatiels and have a breeding program for a rare mutation which appeared in the latest "A Guide To Cockatiels" book, written up by Dr Terry Martin who is a world famous bird geneticist. A photo of my bird showed the unusual feather patterning and colour. Budgerigars were my first bird and I keep the show budgies and Bush Budgies. My interest is in breeding unusual colours.

Calcium is for the Birds!

With nesting time here and little hens laying eggs, calcium is extremely important in your pet or aviary bird's diet. They also need to have natural sun and light on their feathers so they can process their calcium. Here are some calcium sources for birds:
Cuttle Fish
Shellgrit (fine grade is good for most birds)
Vetafarm True Grit is rich in calcium and vitamins too.
Calcium Bell
Liquid Calcium
You can buy these things for your bird on
