Hello and thank you for your question. It appears that the Expert you were hoping to speak with is not currently available. I have stepped in to assist you in their absence so that you have a prompt reply to your question. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) Can you tell me about Reba's cage setup?2) What diet is she fed? I need to know about fruits, vegetables, pelleted diet and hay. Also, any supplements. Be as detailed as you can. 3) How is her stool?4) Any coughing, sneezing, eye discharge, nose discharge?

Thanks for the additional information, JACustomer. Can you clarify some points for me? 1) Are you only offering oranges? 2) Are any other fruits or veggies being offered? 3) What type of hay is being used?
