Too much corn?

My opinion is "yes, he is getting too much corn." Corn isn't particularly nutritious and is full of sugar (corn sugar). But... If your bird loves corn then taking it out of the diet and using it as a training treat is certain to provide a lot of motivation!!
I'm starting to wonder if he's getting too much corn.
Parrots, like five-year-old kids, will eat their favourites to the exclusion of everything else given a choice. Then claim they are full - so that they can have more of what they like...

I have the exact same issue with my birds though to! I have tried using pieces of corn on the cob to forrage or corn stripped off the cob or frozen corn in forragers so they gotta work for it. But its so loved around here, same with apple I wouldn't be able to get away with not feeding it every so often there would be huge tantrums!
