Recently I have been diving into my books on bird nutrition. I am determined to create a better diet for my birds and have found many great recipe's in this book: The Healthy Bird Cookbook. It takes you step by step through the importance of a balanced diet, vitamins and minerals, hazardous foods, mountains of recipes and so much more. I was not aware of the need for washing the skin of a banana before peeling it and feeding the fruit to your bird. The reason to wash it even though you don't feed the peel to your bird, is because, monkey urine is on the skin. Ewwwww....now that was a fact that I was not aware of for myself or my birds. Needless to say, my banana's skin will be squeaky clean from this day forward.
