Hi, I'm Dr. Jena Questen with Drquesten.com. I'm a veterinarian that treats all kinds of pets including birds like my friend, Grover here. One of the things that folks often ask me is what are the best fresh foods that can feed my parrot. Well quite honestly you can feed them almost anything that's healthy food that you yourself would eat such as melons, bananas, broccoli, carrots, sweet potatoes. The only foods to avoid would be avocado, onions, garlic, those kinds of foods are probably not appropriate, but otherwise, peas, green beans, almost anything that you can think of that's good health fresh food is good for you and good for your pet bird. If you have any concerns about any of the foods that you want to feed your bird, certainly check with your local avian veterinarian or a good book that specifies your particular species of bird and which kind of foods they might like best and otherwise hopefully I've given you some suggestions today on what you can do to feed your bird some fresh foods. On that note, I'm Dr. Q. and the rest is up to you. Thanks for stopping by.
