African Grey Parrots Love Beets

African Grey Parrots love beets.

African Grey Parrots love beets.

Charles Earl Grey the 7th is our African Grey Parrot.  We  called him Charlie until one day he said “It’s Charlo.”  Mealtime with his flock (us) is a favorite time of day and he enjoys most of the food we eat.  He has a bit of a sweet beak as his muffin must have jam and butter and his pancakes, maple syrup.  He likes many vegetables, among them beets.  The only thing about beets is that we need to remember that he had been eating them the next morning when we see his droppings as they are bright “beet red.”  The first time we saw this we thought he was bleeding internally.
