Nice site. It appears to contain a lot of information about grays and all birds in general. Thank you for sharing the site with us.

Great sites - I'm sure many will find them helpful. I wasn't aware about the Grapes imported from Chile - I feed washed grapes like any other fruit on occasion but will be more watchful where they are coming from now.

Grapes from the U.S. (mostly California) are pretty high on the pesticide residue list also. It's a crop that is sprayed a lot apparently, but other countries can and still do use pesticides banned in the U.S. (sold to them by U.S. chemical companies often). Because of the high pesticide residues, it's recommended to feed organic grapes, or if conventionally grown, not too often.
