I know many people, who are convinced that only raw food is the best organic parrot food. In Nature there is no cooked food. organic parrot food

Then there are the ones that cook and bake for their birds. Who is right? None of them is right or wrong. It often depends on the bird.

It is correct that there is no cooked food in nature. But what about parrots, that don’t eat raw vegetables? My Grey, for example, eats specially carrots only when at least slightly cooked. Or I know people who bake birdie bread to hide fresh vegetables, so their bird will eat them. Warm food, for many living beings is comfort food. It reminds them of the times, when they were babies and nurtured from their parents. At that time the food they were fed had the body temperature of their parents.  Also the nutrition in some veggies are easier to be absorbed by the body when cooked. It often is enough to cook them in steam for a short time.

With some birds we have to be quite tricky to get them to eat fresh foods. And we have to find a way to get to eat them their veggies.
