She told that the increased sugar builds up bacteria in their gut and can lead to health issues. I was so surprised. I always see videos of parrots/birds eating fruit all the time. I recently watched a video about the Pak-O-Bird and the woman was offering her bird a life savor.
wait what? All I ever hear is to feed more fruit and veg. Maybe less high-sugar fruits I guess. Rio would have been awful, his treat food was raisins... So much sugar
