CHEETOS


MY INDIAN RINGNECKS LOVE CHEETOS. I’VE ONLY GIVEN THEM 1 TINY CHEETO TWICE. SHOULD I STOP?
THEY ARE ON A NUTRIBERRY DIET AND AVI CAKES FROM LAFEBER. MY QUESTIONS IS, ARE THE CHEETOS GONNA MAKE THEM SICK?


Answer:

Hi Olga,

There are plenty of healthy snacks you can offer your birds. They should not be eating something like Cheetos. These are high in salt, contain dairy, as well as artificial colors and flavors- all of which are not healthy for your birds. It’s best to stick to healthy treats that are made for birds. If you offer human foods, you should avoid salt, sugar, oils, and artificial ingredients. We all give in and offer foods that are not good for our birds. And once or twice might be OK. But to be safe, avoid all junk foods. 🙂

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
