    Low fat fish packed in water would be a good animal protein supplement. Won't make up for a crowded space or a neurotically aggressive bird.

    Kind of tight. Tho it matches the 4/10 rule of thumb(minimum IMO). The 4' width is not enough for subordinates to get far enough away from a superior. You may need more space, or you could just have an overly aggressive bird.
