What are the symptoms of Iodine deficiency in parrots?
Natural, healthy Kelp is a "super-food" that also aids in correcting Iodine deficiencies. If your parrot has scraggly feathers, dry skin, scaly feet and poor feather coloring, consider adding AviKelp to your birds diet.
Harvested from the North Atlantic waters, AviKelp kelp granules provide 60 trace minerals, 41 amino acids and 12 vitamins, most notably, Iodine. Sprinkle 1/8 teapsoon on moist food. Do not over-feed.
Health Benefits of Kelp:
While Kelp can help to stimulate a sluggish thyroid it has been found that too much kelp, given daily for a long period of time, can actually inhibit thyroid activity, which could possibly lead to plucking. Please carefully follow package directions.
Hint: Consider serving with organic foods high in zinc such as nuts, pumpkin seeds, spinach, and AviFlax.
