Carbonated Drinks?

Although not good for our parrots due to the sugar and other ingredients, does the occasional sip of a carbonated beverage, i.e. 7-up, club soda, have the potential to kill parrots because of the carbonation in the beverage?

The person who asked this question knows the answer already – ‘pop drinks are not good for our parrots due to the sugar and other ingredients’. If you’re having something to drink that you know your bird shouldn’t share (coffee, tea, alcohol, soda pop) – give the bird a safe substitute such as some dilute fruit juice – or duck out of the room and have your drink out of view!!
