yellow amazon & Kiwi fruit

Is it safe to feed my dbl yellow headed amazon parrot kiwi fruit? No one else seems to have an answer.


Hi Sandra,

Yes, you can offer kiwi fruit to your bird. I always peel it because of the type peel it has. All fruit should be cleaned thoroughly before offering to your bird but with the fuzzy peel on kiwi, I never feel like I can get it clean enough. As with any fruit, offer a small piece – too much fruit can be too much sugar as well as causing watery droppings.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
