Buy Abby – Festive Amazon Parrot Online -For Sale
Abby – Festive Amazon Parrot The Amazon parrots are pigs. They will continue to eat till the food is gone while sitting in front of their feeding bowl. This gluttony makes them more likely to become obese, especially if they consume a diet high in nuts and fatty seeds (such as sunflower, safflower, and hemp).
Long-term health and fertility are both impacted by obesity, as an obese bird may not be able to copulate, the stomach fat will exert pressure on the gonads, preventing their full growth, or their health will be damaged, preventing them from getting into breeding form. It is crucial to monitor the quantity, quality, and fat level of the meals while also promoting activity.
Abby – Festive Amazon Parrot The likelihood of obesity in Amazon parrots varies greatly. This depends on the species size and degree of sedentism. As an active member of the genus, the Yellow-lored Amazon (Amazona xantholora) hardly ever puts on weight.
The Yellow-naped (Amazona auropalliata) and Yellow-headed (Amazona oratrix) species, on the other hand, can readily gain weight since they are far more likely to climb than fly.

Feed a diet low in fat. We keep our Amazons outside in south Florida because the weather there is generally pleasant. They don’t require as many calories during the winter as they would in regions when the temperature drops. As a result, we put them on a finch seed mixture from November to January or February to encourage weight loss should they have gained weight during the summer when rich foods are provided to encourage breeding.
The cutoff date depends on the species because the Yellow-napes nest very early and the Caribbean species much later in the year. In colder climates, once the worst of winter has passed, the fat should be lower to induce the loss of thermoregulatory fat layers. For obvious reasons, I always advise against giving seed mixtures that are high in sunflower, safflower, hemp, or almonds.
