Healthy Veggies


Vegetables, veggies, veggies – give your bird plenty of them!!! You’ve undoubtedly heard that everywhere these days! People are becoming more conscious of the need of providing appropriate vegetables for our companion birds as they become more educated about food and nutritional demands. Unfortunately, folks aren’t always advised what vegetables to eat or how to give them. Although all are nutritious, some are much more so than others.

The diet I recommend is 50% whole grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruit, with at least half of it being vegetables. Avoid lettuce since it is largely water and lacking in vitamins and minerals. Romaine is an exception; eating dark green Romaine leaves on a regular basis is OK. When selecting vegetables, seek for rich color – the darker the green or orange of the flesh, the more Beta Carotene accessible. And, of course, Beta Carotene is the precursor of Vitamin A, which is one of the most deficient elements in the ordinary bird’s diet. Softbills, like parrots, may benefit from daily vegetables. Finches and canaries fed greens and other vegetables on a regular basis have significantly improved their general health and lifespan. Avocado is the only vegetable that has been confirmed to be poisonous to birds and should never be served to them. Although there is some debate concerning onions, tiny quantities of raw or cooked onions are safe for birds owing to the N-propyl disulfide they contain.

Veggies may be given either raw or mildly cooked, depending on your bird’s preferences. Cooking, on the other hand, reduces water-soluble vitamins like B and C. Cooking, on the other hand, makes more Vitamin A accessible in pumpkin, winter squash, and sweet potatoes. Carrots benefit from mild cooking as well. Greens should be offered raw, whereas broccoli may be fed either raw or gently cooked.

Here’s a partial list of healthy vegetables you can feed your bird on a daily basis: carrots, broccoli, snow peas, green beans, kale, Swiss chard, cucumbers, asparagus, corn, pumpkin, acorn squash, zucchini, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, beets, garlic, potatoes, lima beans, spinach, turnips, rutabaga, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, bean sprouts, alfalfa sprouts,

Vegetables, in general, are high in vitamins A and C, as well as minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium. They are useful for “occupational therapy” and keep parrots busy. They are readily digestible and aid in the reduction of stress in birds. Veggies also contain some protein. Including regular portions of a variety of vegetables in your bird’s diet can help him stay healthy and improve his immune system. You’ll be rewarded with better feathering and more vivid flooring, as well as a happier, more happy friend.
