Can birds tell if food is hot or cold?
by: Tracie

I am not a breeder, but I know that some birds like their food hotter than others, so they must be able to tell the temperature of the food.

YOU need to be careful that the food isn't too hot though. Test the food just like you would for a baby. If it is too hot on your wrist, then don't give it to your birds.

Always stir microwaved food because it may have hot spots. If you feed your bird food that is too hot, it will burn a hole in their crop.
