I couldn't agree more. I had an African Grey and we noticed that if he was lacking fat in his diet, his mental ability wasn't as sharp. When we gave him nuts, he really picked up.

Birds will hide when they are unwell so being vigilant about their diet is extremely important aspect of their care.

I found that my parrots loved warm food, such as oatmeal or mashed potatoes.
