parrotlet and tomato
I have had a Parrotlet for 10 years now and have been giving him tomato sometimes 2 x's a day.(for at least 9 years) He loves them. Several years back his droppings changed.
I took him to the avian vet and he said that as long as the dropping had the different components (the dark part and white part) he was not worried.
His droppings are watery and he basically squirts them out. It makes for a messy cage but he seems fine.
I have been reading that it is not the best idea to give birds tomato. Should I discontinue to give them to him? He never gets the stems or leaves just organic or pesticide free tomato.
I have been reading from some of the birds groups that this is something that should be given to birds on a treat type basis.
I would appreciate your advice. Thank-you so much. I just want to do what is best for my little guy. But, he does LOVE his tomato.
