Parrots love to eat with their owners! It's a bonding experience to share your food with your pet parrot.
Take a look below at some images of our pet parrots as they shared breakfast with us.

We eat a lot of fresh fruit here and one of my favorite breakfasts is a fruit smoothie made with fresh berries, whole milk organic yogurt, fruit juice, hemp seed, flax seed, and wheat germ. The pet parrots get excited when they hear the blender as they know they will be sharing in the fresh fruit and the resulting smoothie! This is a delicious and nutritious way to start the day! Darkly-colored fruits are a wonderful addition to your parrot's diet as they are chock-a-block full of nutritious phytonutrients!

Fruits for today's smoothie include bananas, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and kiwi.

Our Blue & Gold Macaw, Mayo, enjoys
a strawberry while he waits.

We're a minute away from breakfast- yum!

Lorita, one of our Yellow-Naped Amazons,
loves raspberries.



Gumby, our Slender-Billed Corella Cockatoo, is a BIG eater! He makes quick work of this nutritious cactus pear so he won't miss a chance to eat something else!



Iris, our adorable Hyacinth Macaw, gets the whole banana!
Then she enjoys a bit of yogurt remaining in the container.

I poured some fruit smoothie into her yogurt container and Iris sticks
her long tongue to the bottom to lick every last drop!



Meanwhile, Gumby has finished his cactus pear and has moved on to a blackberry.
You should see him with a pomegranate!

Togo, our loquacious Congo African Grey, is silent for a moment as she enjoys a blueberry. She just loves blueberries, that she calls "chips". While I am washing the fruits, she says over and over again, "Togo wants a chip", so I give her a blueberry, or two, or eight!

a note of caution: If you decide to share breakfast with your pet parrot, remember
that not all "human foods" are good for parrots in large quantities nor on a frequent basis.
A small amount of well-cooked egg is ok but a large quantity is not recommended.
I know of at least two parrots that died of arteriosclerosis after eating egg
every morning for a couple of years.
