Walnuts In Shell
Walnuts are members of the relatively small Juglandaceae family with 60+ species. Nuts from all species are edible. The shell is rough wrinkled or furrowed and thin. The outer shell is ovoid to round 1/2 -2" in diameter containing two kernels separated by a thin papery central plate extending from the inner layer of the shell. A favourite for all medium to large size parrots.
The great thing about the walnut is its year-round availability. This way your bird will never have to go without its favourite treat. The walnut is also a great source of calcium (100mg per 100grams) essential to the health of parrots that readily eat this nut.
You can crack open a nut and share it with your feathered friend or simply provide it whole and watch them do the work for you.
