Question Mark Thanksgiving for Kirby

Hey guys,
I thought it would be really cute to do something special for Kirby for Thanksgiving. I just wanted to check and make sure that it's safe to do for him. Here was the plan that I had:

Usually, he gets a bowl of pellets 24/7 and 2-4 nutriberries a day for his seed. I was thinking for thanksgiving of simply replacing that bowl of pellets with a bowl of seed for the day. The other thing I was thinking of, and this would be at dinner ONLY, not all day, was maybe giving him all kinds of yummies. I would probably put a little bowl on his treat platform with rice chex (his favorite treat), and any fruits/veggies that we have that he's shown interest in before. Then, also for dinner only, I thought I would hang some millet in his cage.

Is this all okay for his little birdie Thanksgiving, or would that be too many treats?

Everything sounds right to me. It's for a day. My only concern would be tummy upset, but everything you're planning sounds rather tame, so go with it

Happy Thanksgiving to you both

Doing it one time isn't going to hurt him. And he'll probably enjoy it!

Thanks for the replies; Kirby did have a great Thanksgiving dinner, and luckily there were no upset tummies involved I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving, if you celebrate it, as well.
