    Apparently that question has never come up before.

    Birds do not overeat- only humans and pigs do.

    re: sandra
    Humans do.
    Animals frequently do when they have no guarantee of future food. Predators and prey both will stuff themselves when food is available. Mountain lions eat two deer a week on average, but it’s more like today I get a deer, so gorge. Maybe no deer for a time, then they might hit the jackpot when they come across a herd, gorge, and hide some for later. Farm animals usually don’t overeat because they don’t have to worry about food.
    With birds a harder time overeating. They have fast metabolisms and because it’s from beak to sidewalk in 10 minutes, they don’t digest things that well.

    Dogs overeat and snakes will eat then spend months asleep digesting their meal.

    Oh my yes farm animals Will over eat. Any chance they get! I’ve had both horses and cows that I’ve had to have the vet for because they managed to get to some feed or other they really liked and over stuffed themselves to the point of doing serious harm.
    Chickens will over eat too, but their crops protect them from some of the health hazards. An over stuffed crop just won’t take any more food.
    I had a rooster who used to fill his crop to the point where I’d expect him to fall over forward eating dried corn. Never seemed to do any harm but he was one fat chicken.

    That blackbird should be the same, birds stuff their crop (a pouch in the lower neck) where the food is ground up with grit or sand. If the crop is full they can’t get any more down until it empties into the stomach.

    A little late but hopefully we’ll get an update soon. Now that I found it again, I hope I don’t lose it.
