Calcium deficiency in caged birds is a widespread problem. Caged birds are kept on a restricted diet of peanuts and sunflower seeds. Even though these foods are rich in calcium, the foods contain oxalates that will interrupt the absorption of calcium. Birds get used to a diet and refuse to eat anything else, so this compounds the problem to nutritional deficiency. Supplementing your birds’ diet with Calcium helps build and maintain your birds’ skeletal structure and the metabolism of Vitamin D.
