Food thats.. OKAY?

I have been wondering about foods for parrots. Except for the general pellets and bird seed cooking mixes, what other foods are okay/good to feed parrots? I do have a lot of parrot related food available for my bird, but when im eating human food he always wants some. And all of us owners know you just want to give a little bite just this once, but get pulled back to reality because you dont want to harm or even make your bird sick.

Im just curious, know about recipes for birds, but can you give a bite of something else? Ive read from my breeders guide that marie biscuits are OK. And what about rooibos tea?(without sugar and milk) If any one can help that would be great, websites will also be welcome for any info on good food for parrots.

Thanx,
Wilma.

Hi Wilma, I don't have a lot of time right now to post much but I will get back to you later on this afternoon. Have to pop out about 5 mins ago so running very late. I'll be back soon with some of the foods that Bucc eats.

Re: Food thats.. OKAY?

Hi again Wilma, well as promised here's some of the things that Bucc will eat,

Rice and pasta (always cooked) Chicken leg, bone and all toast, peanut butter (small amounts) eggs with the shell crushed into it. Vegetables fruit, (he's not a great lover of fruit but loves pomegranite) squashes, small bit of cheese (not daily) practically anything that we eat he will have a little of. I never give him tea or coffee, but he will have a small drink of orange juice when I have my coffee ( that way he thinks he's having coffee) I keep him off the sugary things makes him too hyper.

Here is some websites with good info on food stuffs.

Hi mate. Variety is the spice of life. Alcohol is a no go and Avacado will kill all parrots. Most other fruits are ok. Leafy green vegies are good for vitamin A.For your eckie nuts like peanuts and almonds will be taken with love and try sweet potato, may be a go. Good luck ok

Makes me kinda hungry...


Hello, I cant really help you because i have a parakeet. I feed her regular seeds, oats and groats, and seed trees. For treats i put various fruits and vegies which she likes.

Sarah,

You'd be surprised what she will eat, my parakeets will also have toast, crushed egg well practically anything that Bucc has, No chicken bones tho' lol. They do love their toast with a little peanut butter on it in the mornings.

I cut mine up quite small for them but they love it. Let us know what she thinks of it. She may not take it straight away but once she gets to know how yummy it is there'll be no stopping her.
