Just a tip you shouldn't believe in every single thing a vet tells you especially when theres facts out there, You just have to do your own research.Doctors are the same, What has the freshness of the salmon got to do with anything? The fact is they don't need meat whether you think its good or bad.
I researched it. I have a different perspective than you. And you won't change my mind. Of course salmon isn't the only source of such nutrients I give my parrot.
Bird Woman, thank you for the response. Glad that there's others from the Pac NW here who understands our fresh fish. I have never tried Alaskan salmon, though. And yes, Chance only gets a little bit, and it is only sometimes when I eat it.
I didn't say it was the only nutrients you give but why would you feed it knowing it could possibly do harm and you could just choose the healthy safe option, For example if you were feeding meat for the protein knowing your bird cant really digest it good like they could in the wild and it could possibly harm them then why would someone feed it if they can get protein from plant sources, If you think about it then it doesn't really make sense now does it
