Foods


Make sure you ask your avian breeder and/or your veterinarian about the diet that is best suited for the species of bird you have decided to keep. In addition to the seeds, fruits, pellets, and other types of foods that are advised for various species of birds, providing your birds with fresh foods on a daily basis is an excellent method to ensure their health. You should provide your birds with a wide range of fresh foods, including the following: carrots, corn on the cob, broccoli, zucchini, squash, bell peppers (they love the seeds), fresh jalapenos, cucumbers, cauliflower, tomatoes, spinach, peas in the pod, green beans, greens (mustard, turnip, collard, dandelion), radishes, apples (no seeds, please), grapes (go easy on these loaded with sugars), Your birds shouldn’t be given the pits of most fruits to eat. Additionally, the following cooked items should be made available (select frozen over canned due to the higher levels of freshness, nutrition value, and salt content): Eggs (whether they are boiled or scrambled), potatoes, Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, yams, rice, pasta, macaroni, peas, beets, legumes of every kind, cabbage, and turnips, as well as practically anything else you consume that does not contain the following: a significant amount of dairy products, avocados, apple seeds (remove all pits and seeds from fruits), asparagus (can cause digestive problems), butter, caffeine, chocolate, egg plant, milk/cream, olives, raw peanuts, rhubarb, salt and salty foods, nicotine, carbonated beverages, junk food including Twinkies, and anything else that is unhealthy for us to consume.

Also, kindly refrain from adding any vitamins or nutrients to either the food or the water unless specifically instructed to do so by your veterinarian. When you initially bring your bird into his new home, you should check to see that he is eating and drinking. You shouldn’t worry if he doesn’t eat everything you’ve set out for him since as long as he or she is eating a range of items, they will eventually develop a liking for most of what you give them over time. Do not stop offering a variety of options, and do not give up. Some people believe that birds have an innate knowledge of what nutrients they require or are lacking, which leads them to believe that birds will consume more of certain foods than others. The greater the variety of foods you provide, the higher the probability that all of your birds’ dietary requirements will be satisfied. Within two hours of feeding, remove the majority of the fresh foods and replace them with fresh water, seed, dehydrated fruits and vegetables, and pellets (if you feed them) at a location where your bird can forage freely throughout the day.
