do these birds get tape worms lol. I mean Maxx will spend most of his day with his head in 1 food dish or the other. and hell he has become a worst mooch then the dog. if he see's me in the kitchen he just marches around his cage waiting to see what he may get. seems the fruit and veggies, cooked chop get the most attention but he still puts a good dent in the Eclectus food I get from Volkmans and mix with their super hook bill food.
sound like a problem or just normal eating habits

Re: Eating

Sounds like normal eating habits to me. Eclectus tend to be really good eaters, and I think mine have bottomless pits in them. They would eat constantly if they could, I think.
