Halloween Themed Parrot Safe Snacks

Halloween themed snacks for your parrot!

Last year for Halloween we gave away goodie bags, or trick or treat bags, and this year I really wasn’t planning on doing anything. But then last minute I felt inspired to do SOMETHING for you guys because I felt like there was a lack of anyone doing anything for their pet parrots for the holidays. I’m all about including my birds in the holidays and felt the need to share some easy tips so you can too, even if you’re the last minute type like I happened to be this year!

Instead of writing all new holiday recipes, I decided to focus more on fun Halloween themed presentations of parrot safe snacks you can offer your bird for the holiday.

So here’s what’s on the menu for your bird’s Halloween!

For breakfast: Vampire pancakes!

No breakfast is complete without a side of ghostly eggs!

If your bird is REALLY hungry, you can add some spiders on the side, too.

If you have more than one bird, they can’t be expected to SHARE the same pancake… so you gotta make them different!


And there’s always the substitution of monster eyes.

For specific information on portion size, how often to feed your bird certain foods (like black olives, eggs and other foods that should be given in certain moderation, visit BirdTricksStore where we answer every single parrot diet and nutrition question you could possibly come up with in ONE cookbook!)

What’s for snacking throughout the day, you ask? Well, that’s easy…

Every bird is nuts if they don’t just LOVE snacking on a ‘bloody’ monster mouth of teeth! One of my bird’s favorite snacks ever.

If you live where it’s hot out, a nice cool frozen skull or witch finger might suffice well.

Now for later I like my birds to eat their veggies — I mean, goblins. So I make sure to prepare a few healthy— err I mean spooky options…

Healthy, I mean SPOOKY lunch options…

Now for dinner, this is the best part…

I like to catch a colony of bats and serve them up in various ways…

Yummy bats!

I often serve the colony with my special Spooktacular dipping sauce!

The birds just LOVE the sauce dunked bats…

As you can see! Mmmm… delish!

All part of a balanced Halloween celebration.

Those are so cute, but my Senegal would give me the blank stare if I gave them to him. Maybe a toast bat would do.
