I have read that dairy is generally not good but that the fermentation process involved in making cheese and yogurt turns the lactose into something else, I can't remember enough biology to be specific. I've often given yogurt, macaws especially seem to love it, with no ill effects.

reclaimingrebus you asked about wild fruit for Ammies. In the late summer/autumn time, I regularly take my ammies out on their harnesses to forage for wild things. Their favourites are Blackberries (wear something old because when they shake their heads, you will end up covered in purple spots!!!), Elderberries, Rose Hips, and Hawthorn Berries. You can also find Hazlenuts if the squirrels haven't already stripped the trees!. You need to be sure they haven't been sprayed but we are lucky to have loads of canals near us and British Waterways do not spray so most towpaths are safe. When in Devon we also take them on a RSPB reserve which again is safe.
Dave.
