What kind of food you can’t feed a parrot



  1. 0 Votes

    What to feed/not feed a parrot seems, at first glance, mostly common sense:

    no chocolate, caffeine, alcohol, processed meats, junk foods, etc.

    However, there are some surprises:  avoid milk products (as birds are lactose intolerant), avocado, rhubarb, onions, fava and navy beans, fruit pits and apple seeds.

    What should you feed them?

    -Carrots, sweet potatoes, leafy greens, small amounts of baked chicken or egg (be careful with meat products, it can be hard on avian kidneys), and/or a moderate amount of seeds and nuts.
