Birds USA Exclusive: Bird Food Quiz Answers

Test your knowledge on bird food and nutrition

Question 1:The correct answer is D
It might take some time for a bird to accept a new food, such as pellets, so make sure your bird is actually eating the new food before removing or significantly reducing the diet it is used to.

If you got the right answer, give yourself 1 point. If your answer is wrong, you receive zero points.

Question 2:The correct answer is B
Sprouted seed is lower in fat than whole seed and has the texture of a fresh vegetable, which might entice a bird to try vegetables and other foods as its food acceptance grows.

If you got the right answer, give yourself 1 point. If your answer is wrong, you receive zero points.

Question 3:The correct answer is C
Ask your avian veterinarian for the ideal weight range for your species of bird, and weigh your bird at the same time each day (e.g. every morning) to check for noticeable changes in weight.

If you got the right answer, give yourself 1 point. If your answer is wrong, you receive zero points.

Question 4:The correct answer is C
Both cuttlebone and mineral blocks offer a good source of calcium and trace minerals, which seed-heavy diets may lack. Female birds that lay eggs (regardless if the eggs are fertile) can become dangerously depleted of calcium when producing eggs.

If you got the right answer, give yourself 1 point. If your answer is wrong, you receive zero points.

Question 5:The correct answer is C
Compared to fruit, vegetables are generally more packed with nutrients your bird needs. Most types of fruit is high in sugar. Parrot species such as lories and toucans, however, need a diet lower in iron and so may benefit from supplementation with fruit.

If you got the right answer, give yourself 1 point. If your answer is wrong, you receive zero points.
