Pros:Looks great for the average bird.

Cons:Not for my old bird.

The Bottom Line:

It probably is a wonderful treat for the average large bird.  Unfortunately, Lorita is not the average large bird.


Last time I purchased parrot mix at the feed store, I grabbed a package of Kaytee Jumbo Millet Spray.  Kaytee Jumbo Millet Spray is a popular premium treat for all large and small hookbills.  I figured, what the heck, for a couple of bucks, Lorita deserves a treat after what he recently went through.  When we got back from vacation last time, my wonderful neighbor who usually watches my bird left for vacation a couple of days before we got home.  Jenny asked her next door neighbor to take care of her pets and Lorita until we returned.  I guess her instructions were not clear enough for that neighbor.  This neighbor must have thought Lorita was like Gandhi who could drink his own urine to survive.  Poor Lorita was panting on the bottom of the cage, dehydrated from no water, and close to death when we returned.

The directions on the Kaytee Jumbo Mille Spray package are fairly simple.  They suggest for best results to hang one spray by a clip, or insert in a holder near a perch or in an easily accessible location.  They recommend it is best to keep the spray off the bottom of the cage where it could become contaminated from the bird waste.  I said to myself, this will not be a problem for Lorita, because he stays off the bottom of the cage almost 100% of the time.  The only time he usually goes to the bottom of the cage is when a wild bird or lizard is close by to get a closer look or to talk or whistle at the bird. They suggest a spray be replaced weekly or as desired.   It sounded great.  However, at first when I hung the millet spray in the cage, Lorita at first totally freaked out with something new or unknown in his castle.  After realizing that the millet spray was not going to fly out of his cage, my bird did what he usually does when I try putting something new in the cage.  After ten or so minutes, he went closer to the millet spray, first smelling it, and then when he realized it would not hurt him, he tore it apart in less than five minutes.  The other two sprays I put in his pigeon grit container.  He had a blast tearing them apart and throwing them all over the patio floor.
