Ha! I can personally remark on at least two African Grey Parrots that absolutely love whipped cream. It’s like crack to them, for some reason.
Hope you and the wonderful bird received warm and fuzzy feelings on Valentines day.
Keeping parrots as domestic pets is something I feel very strongly about, especially as a person who grew up around animals: 4 pet dogs, 3 pet cats, 6 pet birds one of which was in the parrot family, and numerous fish.
Parrots basically need more attention than a human who works and goes to school or any combination of the two can give them. The need basically 24 hours of attention – in the wild they are very social birds, socializing with even other species of bird, and need to fly for cardiovascular health.
I don’t believe parrots should be kept as pets. The best way to help is if you have a parrot, provide it with the best care possible, and do not breed the parrot. Also join a campaign to stop parrots being bred/captured for pets.
