it seems their are many B-vitamins in oranges but not B12 however oranges are a good source of folic acid which is needed for good absorption of B12

If you want to know about B12 as Bill Carney he was the first person to advertise about its qualities for the pigeons

fish,meat,cheese and eggs are the best sources especially shell fish I think the best way to get it into our birds is through a fortified tonic it seems giving b9 or folic acid helps its absorption
