    oh, it looks like your bird needs a little more calcium in her diet. Look at a local pet store and they should know exactly about what you are looking for.:) my parakeet had the same problem a few years ago, but I was only 9 yrs old then. at least you know now:D

    The birdcare company also does a great calcium supplement for cage and aviary birds. We give it to our parrots regularly and used to use it regularly in the aviaries when we had cockatiels, budgies and other parakeets. The supplement is called Calcivet and is in liquid form which can be added to water, softfood or fruit.
