Baby food for a adult yellow headed amazon


I have a 10 year old double yellow headed Amazon parrot and she will not eat fresh or frozen fruit and she will not eat raw veggies. She will eat can corn , nutriberries and shell peanuts. I was wondering if she can have all natural baby food fruit and veggies.


Answer:

Hi,

The Nutri-Berries contain complete nutrition for her, so even if she refuses to eat fresh or frozen veggies, she will be fine. The main reason we recommend fresh foods is for the variety of tastes and textures – the nutritional value is an added bonus! If the baby food doesn’t have added vitamins or iron, a small amount is fine. But you might watch our webinars on feeding a picky parrot to get some ideas!

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
