Birds are an entirely different story in that their embryos are found inside an egg. Nature must provide that egg with all of the nutrients and liquids that are needed to nurture the bird until hatch day. Regurgitation is a method that parent birds used to feed the chicks because they can’t nurse.
Cottage cheese contains no lactose. Usually though yogurt and low lactose cheese are your best bet offered in small amounts. Like a carrot cube size. Note Cheddar is high in lactose whereas Mozzarella is low in lactose.
It’s important to keep in mind that live culture yogurt contains lactose when produced but the organisms in the yogurt consume the lactose which removes it entirely from the yogurt. Some cheese products have onions and garlic which is not good for birds – is best to avoid these.
