Parrot Perch Potato?

Updated: Jul 25, 2019

Fun Fact: Parrots have hollow bones making their bodies lighter in weight. Hollow bones also help with cooling off their body and, of course, contribute to the ability to fly. Does this mean #parrots never have to weigh themselves on a scale except during a Vet visit? No. We should keep track of our pet bird’s weight regardless of their hollow bones. Why? Well some birds, similar to humans, can be lazy or spend too much time on the perch or couch, overeat and prefer to avoid exercise. While we can become "couch potatoes," birdies can become "perch potatoes." :)
