What is a Cockatiel?

A cockatiel is a small parrot native to Australia. They are typically gray and white with yellow heads, but can also be found in other colors like yellow, orange, or even white. Cockatiels are known for their friendly personalities and ability to mimic human speech. It’s no wonder why they make such great pets!

Can Cockatiels Eat Guava?

The short answer is yes, cockatiels can eat guava safely as part of their balanced diet. However, there are important things you should consider before feeding your pet bird this fruit. Guavas are high in sugar content which can lead to health issues if given too frequently or in large quantities. Therefore it should only be offered occasionally as an occasional treat and not as a regular part of its diet. Additionally guavas have seeds inside them which contain toxins that can be dangerous for birds so it’s important to deseed the guava before giving it to your pet bird (or cut around the seed).
