Re: Eating his poop?

I'm chiming in late here but I've been aware of a few pet birds that just started doing this out of nowhere, in adulthood. For some reason it's typically cockatiels that do this, but all parrots have this problem, and typically it is that they are lacking something in their diets, and in my experience it's usually Choline that they are lacking. In all cases I've heard that this was remedied pretty quickly by adding a pinch of brewer's yeast to their staple food that you know they're going to eat. Seems to work really well. If the brewer's yeast doesn't stop his behavior then you know it's not that, but as I said I know of at least 4 cases where that was the issue and the remedy.
