Out With The Bad

Why parrots like the bad food & what to do about it.

As the bird grows, its food gets thicker and soft foods like vegetables, soaked pellets and sprouted seeds are added to its diet. From then on, bird and bird person journey together to see which foods get added to the avian menu. Part of this never-ending quest is to have our birds sample what we eat.
