Most parrots love cooked bird food regardless of the season. But, what bird lover can be cooking up a delicious holiday meal and serve their bird dry pellets or seeds? Warm cooked bird food recipes or even prepared mixes may offer your parrot comfort as it deals with the stresses involved with having a houseful of holiday guests.
