I am new to this board and have a question.
I have lots of pet birds at home. I used to give them a seed diet but when I found out that it is very bad for their health and gives them liver issues I stopped giving them a seed only diet. I researched alot and found out the best diet for my birds. I now make up a few boxes of salad which includes some vegetables and fruits. I mix in some seed into the salad and give it to my birds during the day. In the evening I make them a bowl of mixed soupmix and cous cous. I also buy bird pellets for them.
I have a part time job and I pay for all this. Over the last few weeks my mum has been yelling at me to stop giving them the diet I do and start giving them seeds only. Her argument is that I should not be wasting my money on buying such good food for the birds and that birds are made to eat seed and they do not care what they get to eat. She says the money I use on buying all the food for my birds I should give to charity.
When I have money left I do donate my money to charity but I know what is best for my birds after all the research I did. My mum will not let me buy any more food for my birds and wants me to give them seeds from now on. I really do not want to do this as I know it is bad for my birds.
I think that birds are living things just like us and it is not a waste of money to give them a proper diet as they are my responsibility.
My mum will not let me buy anymore ingredients for the food I make for my birds and is constantly yelling at me if I say I want to buy some.
Can I please get an answer if this is a sin or not.
