Can parrots eat chocolate?

Answers:
NO !!! Avoid chocolate, caffeine, alcohol, kidney beans, lima beans and avocados. These foods are dangerous for parrots.
they could if you gave it to them but it not good for them it will make them ill.
a parrot can eat anything but it will probably kill him
yes they can but it disturbs the part of the brain that controls their ability to fly.it also reduces permeability to air and water.so if you were thinking of doing that to your parrot, please dont...!
NOO.

why would you want to feed your parrot chocolate?? parrots eat bird food... let him munch on vegges or fruit or mineral blocks for birds if you want to treat him.

if he has eaten it, get it to a vets. it takes less chocolate to kill a bird than it does a dog - and not because of the size of the animal!

NO...NO...NO...it will kill them.
One of the most common questions I'm asked is "what other things can I feed my parrot?" I then launch into my litany that consists of everything that is healthy for humans to eat with the exception of chocolate, avocado, and onions. Caffeine is out too, for those who think that their daily cups of coffee or sodas are healthy beverages
But really, the gamut of healthy foods we can feed our parrots runs more deeply than those two simple sentences imply. After all, we can argue forever on what actually is healthy. Pizza contains the four food groups, but when it's heaped with pepperoni, pineapple, olives, green peppers, and everything else, how healthy is it really? A fast food salad may seem like a healthy alternative, until we realize that iceberg lettuce really is mostly water, and the longer vegetables sit around, the less nutrients they hold.
So let's take a look at the four food groups and see exactly what people food our parrots should enjoy.

Dairy. Much of the dairy group can be eliminated as healthy foods for our parrots because parrots, like some people, are lactose intolerant. This means that they cannot digest dairy foods well. Hard-boiled eggs are the only dairy item that can be fed to birds. A little bit of milk included in a recipe won't hurt; however, feeding slices of cheese or yogurt should be done sparingly, if at all.

Grains. This food group includes cereals, grains, and breads. With this food group, it is best to watch for processing. Cheerios, corn flakes, and other "basic" cereals are good to feed to parrots, but watch out for the sugared cereals or cereals with frosting or added flavoring. The same goes for breads. Corn breads and other homemade breads will make your parrot chirp with glee. White or wheat bread from the bread aisle may not be quite as healthy. Grains, such as bulgur wheat, oat groats, rice, millet, and others, can be cooked and fed without worry.

Meat. A little goes a long way when it comes to the meat group. I would recommend small (miniscule) portions fed very sparingly, if at all. Some birds can hold too much iron or protein, and a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, grains, and a pellet or seed diet with vitamins takes care of all of the parrot's needs.

Fruits or Vegetables. Fresh produce all the way, except for avocados and onions. Citrus fruits can be fed in moderation, and when it has to be repacked, choose frozen over canned. The sodium added to canned vegetables and fruits is not good for human or parrot. When it comes to lettuce, the green, leafy varieties are by far more nutritious than iceberg.
They eat anything! Any parrots. love finger foods.!!! ;-)
I mean anything... but chocolate is not too healthy for them.
They eat from raw meat to veggies, from pasta, to fruits AND

THEY LOVE IT.

I have 2 Quakers.
One is 12 years old an the other one is 7 years old. They are potty trained -they are loose in the house and go to the cage ... to the bathroom- ..and talk like crazy.

Their ask for food... when ever see food... ... such as...
."Give me some"...
... "Thank you"... and then...
. "THAT WAS GOOD"

For mine Quakers... -parrots- their favorite's are: their regular seeds mix with .
cereals, pasta, green paper including the seeds, and ...broccoli... ;-)

Teach them trick with small peaces of finger food.
Show their favorite food... repeate... and. do not give them the food until they say - or make some noise- what you what them to say. - Be patience, takes time -

Good luck.;-)
never give a parrot chocolate tea coffee or avocada pear all very toxic to the bird also be careful when cooking with teflon coated pans if they burn dry and the teflon burns it will kill a parrot in seconds
It can cause diarrhoea.
yes,may be have to give water togther
no no no. my bird found a little candy bar and ate it and he was deathly ill he wouldnt come out of his cage for three days. he threw up, and it was so sad. I never keep chocolate in my house . because he likes to dig in my cupboards and drawers.
chocholate is poisen to parots be very care full there are lots of nonos that can poisen him please be very carefull ,,,,,,,,,
NO!!

It is even more dangerous for birds than it is for dogs and cats-a small amount could kill them.
Do not feed birds any foods that contain chocolate. An ingredient of chocolate—theobromine—is toxic to birds just as it is to dogs and cats.
your not suppose to feed them chocolate but my macaw loves it .he has about a mouthful of chocolate at least once a week(when u have children and they feed em)
he's been to the vets and is in perfect health (and ive mentioned it to the vet himself and as my bird has been eating a little bit for so long and he has no problems .( this is a top form avian vet) as long as my bird dont have large amounts an everyday then my vet says it ok for him to have it
i have a grey and chocolate is poisonous as is avocados fumes from cooking pans and smoke from cigarettes etc as the lungs are very sensitive.
Its NOT good for them!
you should read up on parrot care,if you need to be asking this,then you didn't do the research first!!!!Parrots cant have choc at all,its poisonous!!!
YES .. But give little please.

NEVER DO WING CLIPPING PLEASE. WINGS ARE THE BEAUTIFUL ORGAN OF THE BIRDS. IT IS LIKE CLIPPING THE HANDS OF THE PERSONS.
WINGS MAKE BIRDS BALANCED WHILE WALKING OR STANDING. WINGS ARE USEFUL FOR THEIR DEFENCE AND THEY LOVE TO SPREAD THEIR WINGS WHEN TAKING BATH . Iam passing this message to all pet birds lovers.
i've been keeping parrots for 12 yrs and luckily none of my birds have ever got any chocolate but i've heard it's really bad, can cause death.
