Overeating

Do parrots overeat and make themselves sick or will they stop eating when they've had enough???

Re: Overeating

This really depends.

They can certainly over eat and gain to much weight, but overeating to the point of sickness? I highly doubt it. If they get sick from eating a lot it is more likely WHAT they eat then how much.

Is yours getting sick, do you think he's eating too much?

Re: Overeating

Birds can most definately overeat, but not generally to the point where they will get sick. Just make sure your bird is getting a balanced diet. Your bird can become obese or overwieght, so making sure your bird is getting a proper diet is crucial.

Re: Overeating

I second what AD and DustyDusky say.
Perhaps the bird is eating too much of one particular thing.
Very important a bird gets a balanced diet.
Keep us posted
Great day

Re: Overeating

No he's not getting sick and right now we're being very careful about what we feed him. It was really just an fyi question. I know there are alot of animals that will overeat enough to make themselves sick so I was wondering. I have horses. They will overeat enough to kill them if they have access to the wrong foods
