No. 5 of the 5 Messiest Foods Your Bird Will Love: Pomegranates

Get your sponge ready for these irresistible, messy foods that your pet bird will love to devour.

By Brian Meade

A pomegranate makes a delicious snack for a pet bird

What’s green and blue and red all over? An Amazon parrot with a beak full of pomegranate seeds, helping to paint your house a nice shade of dark red!  Pomegranates are a mystery to a lot of people, and cutting one open for the first time can be a rather shocking experience.  A pomegranate’s dark, tough skin, pale leathery flesh and juicy, brilliant-red seeds leave most people wondering exactly what’s edible and what isn’t.  It’s those little red pearls of pomegranate seeds hidden inside one of these oddities of nature that your pet bird will love to sink its beak into.

A pomegranate’s health benefits are impressive; it’s lower in sugar than many other fruits and provides a large variety of vitamins in a relatively small package. Pomegranate seeds are even the perfect size for some smaller pet birds, like cockatiels and budgerigars (budgies).  Have a sponge ready though, otherwise pomegranate juice will cause you to seriously consider painting your house to match!
