You can't feed your bird chocolate it's toxic to them and you will make them very sick. Please don't do this again. Your bird definitely should not be eating junk food and drinking coke, it's bad enough for a humans health let alone a little bird. Rocko will enjoy sunflower seeds as treats and they won't kill him, though the should still be given in moderation. Try whole grain bread too. Really I can't stress enough not to feed your bird junk food, it may be cute but youre doing damage to your bird. Google safe foods for cockatiels, I'm sure you'll also find the unsafe lists too where chocolate is pretty high up there as a really really bad thing to feed them.

I'm glad you and Rocko bonded more, but chocolate and carbonated, caffeinated beverages are definitely not good for him and could make him sick. Chocolate and caffeine are both toxic to birds and carbonation really messes up their system because they can't pass gases out of their bodies well

Please don't feed him that kind of food. There are some things we can't completely avoid like illness and accidents but the food we offer to our birds is entirely up to us - stay with good nutrition so he can live a long and healthy life.

I definitely recommend you do some research on what is ok for birds because chocolate can KILL your bird the sugar in the coke will be hard for him to regulate the carbonation is dangerous as birds don't pass gas well. The salt in your crisp is very harmful to birds. So all in all I will say what you gave rocko will likely effect his negatively and would not be at all surprised if you see problems in him over the next couple of days.

Yes, food like that will effect Rocko's health in a bad way. The food and drink you gave him is highly toxic to birds, please don't do this again. Birds shouldn't be fed McDonalds either. :(

Ooh that's good that you were joking! I was kind of like... O_O
You made me really want some strawberry wafers now.

Just make sure to put a clear "Just kidding" at the end or say this isn't true in the title somewhere so people don't misunderstand! :)

And to anyone seeing this, chocolate is deadly as everyone has said.

Oh, thank goodness! There just wasn't really a way to tell that you were joking. It's not really something that most members on this forum would joke about.
