I was told chocolate can kill budgies.

Even in very small amounts, chocolate can be toxic to birds. Chocolate contains both theobromine and caffeine which can cause vomiting and diarrhea, increase heart rate, result in hyperactivity, induce tremors and seizures, and even cause death in birds. As little as 3 M&Ms can kill a songbird.

Chocolate is HIGHLY TOXIC to BIRDS!

The chocolate is in the wine. . . .
Even though they are omnivores, there are certain things that a parrot should not eat, especially chocolate. Chocolate contains caffeine and theobromine, which are chemical compounds that are toxic to parrots.
