Myths & Facts - Fruits and Wet Faeces

I observe that many people like to keep this small bird for their beautiful song. Zosterops (Zosterops Palpebrosa) is normally called 'Mata Puteh" (white eye) in this region.

Hi guys..
im Mike from Singapore-Hougang area..
recently got back into keeping songbird(Mata Putih) afterall its my childhood teenage sport but never reali could well afford the luxuries like porcelain cups & expensive cage..

Nevertheless got a mata putih from a colleague..bird was nice wif Ar Bu body,u noe the type like they abit hunchback wif overlapping wings drooping..was well being able to buka when i 1st introduce it into my house,as im staying HDB flat i'll bring everyday(almost) after work to 'chai' with the neighbour Super Putih which was loud,clear & long buka even thou its 7 storeys away from where i hang directly infront of the tree @ the void deck of where the neighbour hangs outside his window so as to train my bird to challenge his good putih..

All was good,daily 1-2 times of bathing,piece of fruit,sunbathing..
until 1 fine day i realised my bird no longer buka during the daily evening 'chai' session..it was after reading some info from dis forum i realised it shld be becos:

1: i mixes Three Coin with its regular feed of Ah-Har,thinking it will be better..haiz :cry: :cry:
2: i gave too much fruit thus it finishes up the fruit more den its new daily feed thus losing its api(fire)..
3. Watery shit due to much emphasis on the fruit den the solid dry food..

I noe that the bird is still pretty healthy & jumping around the cage as well as nice chirping's just dat it dun buka now animore it made mi feels bad for not being able to bring the best of out for Toto..(his name) :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I've just gotten a fresh pack of sole Ah-Har pellets dat Toto used to strive on,stop giving fruit as from yesterday..hope any kind enthuiasts can relight Toto's api(fire)..
thks.. :) :) :)

Topic: Probable remedy for Puteh wet faeces

Hi all fellow Puteh members,

Good Saturday morning to you.
Me is also a victim of this Puteh-Watery-Shit issue.
So much so that i'd accepted it as it is and continue loving it as it is.

An Amazed Discovery - the answer to this remedy is - caterpillar.

You see, my this Puteh (for months) had been extremely watery. The one difference recently is.. i found Caterpillar feasting on my lime plant. Gladfully, i deliver it and my Puteh love it. Looks like a heavenly food to the Puteh also. Immediately, it looks like the Caterpillar had boost-up my Puteh nutrient level - can shoot thru' the roof. For the past 3 weeks, my Puteh had been yumming about 3 caterpillars a week.

Next next, as if by magic, yesterday i noticed its watery-shit had significantly improved. Just a moment ago, i went to verify again.. the result is wow-wee. Can you imagine hmm, an 70% improvement?

Hmm, thou' it is slightly too early to conclude, i'll continue feeding caterpillars and monitor. Then i'll post an further update - say 3 weeks later.

Well, i may still am a novice, i truly hope that this is a fruitful and positive discovery to our world of 'Watery-Shit' Puteh.

Cheesy Cheers..

:bravo :bravo :newhere:
