Hi there! I may just not be the best at searching these things up, but what is known about the protein content of captive parrot diets? And can anyone link me to empirical studies on the subject? That's a big issue for me, I would like some credible sources on the issue. Some claim that a diet high in protein can cause a bird to be hormonal. But most articles I've come across tend to phrase it as a correlation: hormonal parrots eat a lot of "high protein" food, but there doesn't appear to be any information on whether the protein causes the hormones, or the hormones make them consume high-protein foods. Or if it's even an interaction. Is there anything known in terms of mechanics and physical effects on the hormonal balance of high protein -- whatever that practically means -- in captive parrot diets? Not just conjuncture. And what does "high protein" practically mean? What percentage of their diet makes their diet "high protein"? For what it's worth, my parrotlet seems to be exceptionally disinclined from showing hormonal behavior. So I'm not exactly worried I'm -- knowingly or unknowingly -- doing something right in terms of diet. But as a macronutrient, there's a lot of focus on fat. And I'd be curious to learn more about the effects of protein in terms of hormones.
