Although parrots are Australian birds, today they are more than integrated in many houses around the world, as they have become used to living in bird cages. A large part of society believes that these animals only feed on seeds, but the reality is not this, but they need a rich and balanced diet. For your parrot to be well cared for, you should take into account these tips that give you on how to feed a parrot.

Steps to follow:

1. Parrots, like the vast majority of animals and including humans, need a varied diet to live healthily.

2. In addition to seeds such as sunflower, millet, birdseed, corn and other varieties, we must also include fruits and vegetables in the usual diet of our parrot, and even nuts.

3. Likewise, you can also find completely balanced feed for parrots on the market. These foods are a great advantage and convenience since in a simple and easy way they provide the parrots with practically everything they need.

4. In the case of fruits and vegetables, you should always wash them well to remove any remaining pesticides

5. Contrary to what the saying “parrot chocolate” says, these animals should not take cocoa in any of its forms. And it is that this food contains the bromine, an exciting substance that affects the hearts of parrots, which can cause them to die suddenly. Also, you will not be able to feed them avocado,

6. Food cooked, cured or preserved in salt should not be part of the diet of these birds either.

7. In addition to offering it a correct diet, we must place a cuttlefish bone (or cuttlefish) or a calcium stone in the cage of our parrot so that it correctly wears its beak.

8. Obviously, parrots will also require clean water in a trough in order to drink and be properly hydrated.

9. And food is not everything, but these birds need other care that you can discover in this article on How to care for a parrot.
