Is watermelon okay?

by Angela

Is it okay for my Quaker parrot to eat watermelon? She eats apples, grapes, peaches and raisins. Doesn't much care for any other fruit. I know there are certain things to never give a parrot, wasn't sure if watermelon was one of them. Thank you.

Peanuts

Are raw peanuts not good for parrots? What about roasted without salt?

Editor's notes: I can't say peanuts are "good" for them at all. They are high fat, and they cause personality disorders in many birds. (They cause anxiety and emotional problems in many people too, they just don't stop eating them to discover it's the peanuts causing the chemical imbalance.)

Hi Angela, according to Tracie watermelon is safe but NOT the seeds, so if you do buy melons that have seeds make sure you don't let your bird get hold of the seeds. I always buy the seedless ones.
Good luck with your bird.
