In the wild, parrots always eat their dinner with an eye towards the greater good.

For instance, when a parrot plucks a delicacy from the surrounding foliage, he won’t hog all of it to himself. Rather, he will eat a portion and fling a portion down to the forest floor, eating and flinging in this way so that there will always be more fresh delicacies where that one came from.

For modern parrots, bringing your large featherless assistant up to speed on this ancient tradition can take patience. They may misunderstand your attempts to repopulate the forest floor with delicacies as “making a mess.”

Nevertheless, you must persist. If you don’t make more millet trees, who will?

A very patient and persistent parrot tries again to demonstrate how he makes more millet trees by sending some of his dinner down to the forest floor to repopulate itself.
