Why does my cockatiel keep gaining weight?
I have a 2 year old female, she eats mostly harrison's pellets. we give her 2 or3 teaspoons a day like it says on the bag, but lately it's just been 2. in about a month she's gone from 106 to 110 grams. we want her to be around 96, so we stopped giving her nutriberries and rationing her food intake off a lot since we knew she was eating a lot and thought that would be good enough.
but she's only gained weight since then. why would that be? everything else seems fine, her droppings seem a little smaller since we put her on a "diet", but i figured that's just because we're giving her less to eat. i know a few grams of fluctuation is normal, but it doesn't seem to be going down at all, only up. any tips on getting it down?
