I posted this diet
quite some time ago but with some of the posts I thought it might be time to post it agian. The High protein baby cereal is not as high here in Australian. Honey is not as sweet as US honey. The sultanas are just like raisens. The rest of the diet
is pretty straight forward. The local vet
suggested to us to add as many insects as we can to the diet
for added protein and calcium.
has been used at The Healesville Sanctuary (A Native Animal Zoo)since the early 1960's.
Helesville Sanctuary diet
1 Dog chow/Advance.
6g Fruit, chopped (1 tablespoon)
3ml Nectar mix.
1g fly pupae(1/4 teaspoon)
2g Sprouted seed (mung beans, alfalfa etc.)
5 pollen grains-once per week(bee pollen grains available at Health food shops)
3 sultanas-3-4 times per week
2 sunflower seeds-once per week
1g Pet health food(small cube)-once per week.
I use an all natural no added preservatives chicken loaf for dogs and freeze it.
1 almond-once per week
Insects-3-4 times per week (moths crickets etc.)
Acacia, eucalypts. other blossoms as avavilable.
2 litre formular:
700ml of Australian Honey,
1 litre Hot water,
3 eggs(hard boiled no shell)
Soluvet 20 ml(liquid vitamin for birds)
250ml cold water
High Protein Baby cereal 70g
Blend together hard boiled egg, Soluvet, calcivet and cold water. Once blended add mix to honey and water, together with High protein Baby Cereal. They love the nectar mix.
You will notice their is no yoghurt or fruit juices in this diet
. Yoghurt is not recommended by our vets
as they believe it upsets the natural bacteria already in the gliders gut that help them break down their food.
