What a joke
I can get a snack when I need.
You will see a dogs ribs & know you have gone too far.
Most people can not judge a birds proper weight.
Look into the DVD by Good Bird Inc.
All you need to hold back are the birds most fav. food
Pine nuts, seeds, what ever junk they crave most.
I never hold back frt., veg. etc. & keep good pellets at available
at all times. -no begging for basics-
You NEVER want the bird so desperate it will sell its self for food!
I own The Chet DVD set and did not like it.
The Captive Foriging DVD is also good. It will give you ideas on
making toys that will keep the bird happy.
Windy City Parrot sells a DVD by Mechelle Karras on proper cage set
up and basic bird care.
The Chet DVD set had nothing I could use.
Good luck and keep your humanity
