Forget about pellets.

What you are feeding the grey is a lot better than those commercial parrot pellets full of ickky additives.

If you want to give even better food than what you have try making mash
You have a look below and you decide.

Thanks again James.

Sorry for the late reply, its been a bz week for me and i had been checking out other sites/posts for advice as well.

I'll consider the shop at tun razak this weekend if possible. I was thinking of going to PERHILITAN but 2 concerns came to mind:-
a) Will they actually believe my story and allow me to apply for license since i have no receipt/ any idea where my CAG came from?
b) If they did not believe me, what were the chances of getting summoned and the bird confiscated?

Reason for my fear above was because i had run across a few older threads in 2010 and 2011 where forummers had voiced the strong possibility of option2 happening=/

I'm quite attached to it now and we've started some simple training. She (just a random guess on the gender) has started responding to some simple 1-word and clicker sound commands but is quite the playful fella. Wants to follow me around the kitchen and living room if possible and needs alot of coaxing to get her to go back into her cage when its time sleep eventhough she has started yawning :lol:

I'm from KL, so I'll see how it goes from here.

Cheers,
Jess

Hi Shan Lung,

Thanks for the reminder. For a moment there i had forgotten about the "additives" part.

The recipe is interesting.... somehow looks tasty to me too :oops:

Maybe i'll try it for xmas and see how *she* responds.

Thanks again!
Jess

The mash is tasty. Try not to fight with birdie over the mash.

Hope this will help you in the understanding and bonding.
Nothing special, just common sense.

Might help to ignite the magic in your relationship with the birdie.
