My doves love my cockatiel's food and my cockatiel loves my dove's food. I've actually tried exchanging the two but they just looked at me as though I had lost it. I thought I'd try a new thread so this is it. The birds also go nuts over popcorn. All three of them - my two doves and my 'tiel. The 'tiel gets very aggressive about popcorn and the doves wait for him to chew it so that they can eat up the remains. The main problem I have is that I can't cage any of them. The doves flap around until they hurt themselves and the 'tiel gets such a bad attitude, he thinks I'm his mortal enemy if I put him in his cage. So, as one would suspect, I'm constantly cleaning. New York City birds. Go figure.

My parrotlet is the only one who likes popcorn. I'm not sure, thought, which he enjoys more, eating it or flinging it about.

Our birds love popcorn. My Vet has it at the office. As long as it's a treat and not a diet, I can't see it hurting anything.

If I carry a bag of popcorn into my living room a pair of B&G macaws will land one on each shoulder. There's no way to stop them from eating their share which they figure is about half the bag. Healthy? I go light on the salt, butter, and caramel. That's for my health, not for theirs.
If you find a bird that doesn't make a mess with food it's probably either ceramic or dead.

I hear the Norwegian Blue is real easy to keep up after. I am always threatening to trade Charlie in for one as I clean up his constant mess.

My keets don't like popcorn. They look at it like it's a repulsive foreign object, even if I eat some in front of them. You'd think at least one of the four would give it a try but none of them ever do. Now walk into the room with a tortilla chip and watch it disappear! Emotion: smile Becky

Our cockatiel likes popcorn (or corn wafer biscuits, which are 99% pure popcorn) a lot, but only if we break it up into little pieces. His/her attitude is: if it doesn't look something like a seed, i'm not gonna touch it!

I'm always amused by the personalities among the birds. Mine all love popcorn. When I pop, they all get very quiet and watch my every move. If they see me going for the salt shaker they get loud because they know that they get theirs first before the poison gets added.

Recently, I've been treating them with Bene Bac and have found the popcorn to be a vehicle for the powder. I put popcorn in a plastic bag, spray with "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray" and shake the BB onto the popcorn. It then sticks to the kernels and they eat every last one.

Sincerely,
Joanne

Our Tiel has never been adventurous with food, not much interest in anything except those Nilla wafers. If you hold one for him he will really go at it, just loves them.
