Why and when to feed activated carbon to your bird?
At one time, Bird charcoal was included in every bird starter kit on the market. Today it is not as readily available, but it is an indispensable product that should be bought when acquiring a new companion bird. We recommend to always have activated charcoal on-hand, in your avian first aid kit in case of accidental ingestion of a toxin. There is no contraindication to giving a small amount of activated charcoal, which is often what a veterinary hospital would do upon suspicion of the bird having ingested a paint flake, lead or another toxic substance.
