Amazon Parrot eats too fast
Hello I have an amazon parrot who is about 10 months old. She is on a pelleted diet (Zupreem natural). Ever since we got her she has had this problem where she eats way to fast and sometimes even chokes a little on her food and coughs. She eats her veggies and fruit slowly and dislikes seeds almost entirely.
Its just the pellets that she loves to choke down. I feel bad because I feel like she is still hungry. I started giving her extra which she would eat immediately until she started gaining too much weight and our Avian vet said to stop giving her the extra bit. She doesn't know why she eats so fast either.
Any ideas? I'm worried about letting her eat without me in the room because of the possibility that she may choke and I won't be there to help her.
