To be honest frankie,i do not really know if you should be giving them extra vitimins mate, seems strange propping birds up who should not need it,unless of course you can see problems?

Just surfing here Smile Smile lol! lol! lol!. Watched a show the other night on TV etc to do with this subject for humans from the grand old US of A Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes where it is a billion dollar business type of thing Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad. Full of snake oil merchants was the final conclusion & most goodies on offer when tested didn't even have in them what was surposed to be there for the most part & were just made up with fillers, sadly. It also reminded me of the trouble Mclaughlin got into over there when he advised the use of Virkon S for the birds/pigeons by some do gooder  Wink  Wink  as it appears the vitamin area there is totally un regulated apparently & the goverenment doesn't become involved till some start falling of their perch Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes  because of the money that comes back to them in the end. cheers
