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.


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,

Brenda
