Parrot


Why my 3 months parrot eating a lot and what can I do to stop him .


Answer:

Hi Vanshika,

I really need to know more such as what kind of bird, and are you hand feeding it or weaning it and what you are feeding it. Birds are not likely to eat too much as long as they are getting the nutrition and calories they need. You should not be trying to stop it from eating. It is either eating a normal amount of food, or you are not offering the right kind of food so the bird needs to eat more to survive. A young bird does eat a lot. They are learning to eat and can waste as much as they eat. You should not restrict a bird’s food. They eat throughout the day and should always have some type of food available.

Thank you for Asking Lafeber,

Brenda
