What constitutes a healthy treat for my pet bird?

It is important to note that any pet avian's diet should only consist of a maximum of up to 10% of treats. Although most bird snacks are safe, healthy and may even provide your pet with benefits, they are usually high in sugar or fat and would not account for the other vital nutritious components that your bird would require for an all-round balanced diet.

Healthy bird treats that are commercially available may be identified by their mineral and vitamin configuration. KAYTEE Forti-Diet Pro Health Healthy Bits are a perfect example of a nourishing treat. Although these bits contain honey, a tasty yet sugary component, it is balanced out by the presence of vitamins such DHA Omega-3 and biotin - both of which aid in the overall health and well-being of your bird.

What is the safest way to feed treats to my bird?

This is entirely dependant on your bird's disposition as well as your relationship with them. If your bird is shy or anxious, hand feeding them their treats may be difficult, although this is a safe and preferred method by many avian owners. Hand feeding treats is commonly referred to as 'bonding' amongst bird lovers.

Even if your bird is shy and doesn't feel particularly inclined towards getting up close and personal with you, using treats and slowly introducing the process of hand feeding to them is an ideal and safe way to get your pet to open up while building trust with you.

Is parrot food safe or healthy for other birds?

This is completely subjective to the size of your bird. Parrot food is usually formulated with bigger birds in mind, as parrots do tend to rank as larger in relation to other avian pets. However, some parrot feeding products, or treats, may be available in smaller sizes. This would significantly decrease any hazards or difficulty a smaller bird may face when consuming this type of food.

Regardless of the sizing aspects, parrot food is generally healthy and safe for consumption by other household birds. Nevertheless, it is always advised that you check in with your vet before you feed your bird anything that you may be unsure of, or anything that wouldn't typically fit in with their specified diet.

Additionally, the nutrition ratios in parrot feed may differ from other bird foods, so it would be beneficial to adjust your avian's daily intake accordingly, so as to make sure that you're not overfeeding them.

How else can I reward my pet bird's behaviour?

Providing treats for your pet bird is the most common form of rewarding them for positive behaviour, as well as  for achievements in training. However, birds happen to be incredibly social creatures by nature. Therefore, indulging them in a healthy amount of praise when they've behaved well is always a good idea. Vocalising your affection and approval to your avian is also a wonderful way to further build on your relationship.

If you and your bird have an especially close relationship, and if they are comfortable with physical touch, then rewarding them with scratches and strokes is also something that they are likely to thrive off of. How you pet them, as well as where to touch them, is dependent on your bird's personal preferences. Some birds enjoy head scratches, whereas others prefer to have their wings stroked - figuring out what your pet likes is just another aspect of the bonding process.
