Picky Parrot Webinar – Meyer parrot diet


How much food is healthy for an adult meyer parrot?


Answer:

Hi Grace,

The calories and food amounts are just a basic guideline. You can get a general idea based on a species she showed that is around the same size as your Meyer’s. Dr. Lamb mainly wanted owners to understand that birds only need small servings of fruits, greens, veggies and treats. As for the daily diet, the bird should always have food in the cage for his physical and mental health. But to encourage him to try new foods, you can offer part of the daily food in the morning, along with fresh foods you want him to try, and then he can have more of his daily food later.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
