Malachi's Buddy - eat meat ok?

I have a half moon conure. I rescued him from a bad situation. He was 3 years at the time. He has been with me for about 5 years.

When my husband and I sit down to eat supper, Malachi is always delighted to eat his food at the same time. We occasionaly give him bits of pasta, small portions of fruit. His favorite food is meat, I give him small pieces of pork chops, and chicken. No batter, skin, or fat. I could never find out any info on this until a neighbor that owns a conure told me NEVER to give him meat.

Is meat unsafe for him? I do not give to him on a regular basis, mabe once or twice a month.

I will appreciate any help you can give me,

Feeding meat to parrots
by: Tracie

It is fine to feed your parrot small amounts of unsalted meat. Salt is not good for your bird and salty food should not be fed to them. Fried food should also be avoided, it is not healthy for either of you.
