Robert B. wants to know,
Can an African Grey and Green Cheek Conures eat cheese?
Birds are lactose intolerant, but no one ever told the birds.
Cheese should not be a daily part of any bird’s diet.
In the wild, birds are generally scavengers so yes, if they happened across a chunk of leftover cheeseburger and eat it. They will be fine.
The cheese will pass through their digestive tract undigested.
In our homes, a small taste once in a while will be of no harm.
Select harder white cheese over soft yellow cheese as they have less lactose.
And by “small taste” I mean a piece the size of a carrot cube.
If you have a grilled cheese, don’t feel bad about giving a little bit of the warm corner to your bird.
The same with a bit of pizza crust with a tiny bit of melted cheese on it fully cooled of course.
I hope this helps.
