It depends on the species of bird - birds of prey are meat eaters but they don't normally find their way into our households as pets. Birds are designed to eat a specific diet, for example seed eating birds have a digestive tract that specifically digests and absorbs the nutrients from a seed diet. These days there are also pelleted diets that have the right balance of nutrients for their needs. If birds are fed an inappropriate diet, they can end up with nutrient excesses and deficiencies that can cause ill health. I'd suggest you don't give your bird chicken meat and stick to a more appropriate diet for him. | 10.26.15 @ 00:35
