About carrots from Johnny King:

When we put carrots through the juicer we feed the pulp to the parrots. In addition, we either drink the juice ourselves or add some to the Lori Drink. We make up a Smoothy for the Lories every early afternoon containing Scotch finger biscuits, dextrose, apple pure, multivitamin juice, calcium, and Insectapro. The pure varies depending on the available fruit.
