Can You Stop a Bird from Throwing Food on the Floor? Yes, you can. But you can't stop a bird from trying to throw food for the fun of it. Fun is important to a parrot.

Why is my bird throwing her food on the floor? A question we think more often than not in our parrot lifestyle.

There are 4 reasons parrots throw food.

  1. Too much food. Parrots love variety. And parrots take advantage of glorious days of excess. By throwing the excess on the floor.
  2. The food you put in there is new, and you didn't ask them about your idea.
  3. Their food has gone off. Parrots aren't impressed with out-of-date foods any more than humans.
  4. It's a game. Humans may have forgotten how to celebrate joy with fearless abandon. Parrots have fine-tuned fearless abandon.

If you've lowered the portion of their food, double checked freshness, stopped bringing up your ideas, and your parrot is still throwing food out of their bowl; It's time to add boundaries to their bodacious.
