A little bit every once in a while won't hurt, but honey is not an item that needs to be fed with any regularity. If you trying to change bird from an all seed diet to organic pellets, a very tiny bit of honey on pellets can help the process. So can a little bit of organic apple juice. Feed your bird wholesome organic pellets and the recommended veggies and feed only small amounts of fruit and veggies. Pellets should make up 80-85% of total diet with fruit and veggies at only 10-15%. This does not mean daily, this means overall diet, so go easy on fruit and veggies. The idea is to have our parrots eating a high quality organic pelleted diet with a few other things added for variety of tastes and textures.

Feed NO human foods and this especially means any snack foods as these are full of fat, salt and sugar.Refined sugar will kill birds as will salt. Fat takes a bit longer and is a killer all the same.

So, though honey is not poison for a bird, it is not recommended in any large amounts or very often.
