Hi, is chicken good for a parrotlet... it might sound like cannibalism, but Kiwi tried to get my pece of chicken the other day... i let him have a crumb and he wanted more... he seemed to like it... is cooked chicken breast good for him? It had no seasoning bc i dont like seasoning on my chicken.... and it was chicken breast.

A lot of people do not give much animal protein for several reasons. A taste of chicken once in a while is OK.

We do not utilize animal proteins but acheive protein through feeding the beans/legumes. Dr. Wolf from the avian section of the University of Hanover and a nutrition expert for parrots strongly advises against feeding any animal proteins to parrots. They increase the uric acid and will lead to gout. They do not need it nutritionally and it can harm them.
