- CAUTION: I am not a parrot expert or a nutritionist. Please talk to your veterinarian about your parrot food recipe to be sure it does not contain anything harmful to the species, and that it will supply adequate nourishment.
- Make sure fruit and vegetable first rinse them before you edit and give it to your bird(s).
- Some foods are toxic to parrots and must avoided when you make your own parrot food. These includes:
(shelled) ground peanuts (read this about the good jungle peanuts!)
some seeds (from fruit)
onion (including garlic and chives)
Be careful, or give no tomato, spinach and mushrooms
- If you are giving your birds a pellet with added supplements, read the instructions you can give besides the pellets.
Again, I am not a nutritionist, so If you are in doubt, always look on the internet or ask your veterinarian!
I avoid upper foods because I know or heard they are not good.
