It’s not uncommon for stressed seed eaters to turn it around quickly once switched to Harrison’s. (for quick “Bird Bread conversion” please visit http://www.harrisonsbirdfoods.com/budgies.html )
Since the diet change, he’s grown in lots of new feathers! The pic on the right was just taken a month ago. His neck is still pretty bald, but look at his face! Even better — he seems happy and his blood values are almost normal now. I firmly believe the Harrison’s products have a lot to do with his improvement… so, thank you! 🙂
Buzzy had been a little underweight at 73 grams when I first adopted him, but since the recovery from his illness and the diet change, he’s been steady at 78 grams (which is about right for his size). At his last physical exam, the vet commented on how well-muscled Buzzy is now. Buzzy’s also been singing a lot more, and has been more active in general. He looks forward to his snuggle time every evening, when he gets his Harrison’s Bird Bread. I’m not sure if he’s mostly interested in the snuggles or the bread, though, lol. One more brand new thing – he’s had a bald spot on his right wing, where the long primary feathers are supposed to be, so he hasn’t been able to fly. Well, when I was giving him his shower this morning, I noticed a new feather starting to come in.
Not much is known about his past though, beyond the overcrowded conditions he’d been in. I’m not even sure how old he is (he had X-rays done when he was sick, and the vet said it looked like he might be an older bird, but beyond that, no clue).”
An extra special thanks to Jennifer B. and Buzzy for taking the time out of her day to share their story!
Happy Holidays to all of our feathered friends (and their owners)! – The Harrison’s Team
