But I bet it's similar to any non-organic produce that you don't peel-- so unless you are doing organic only, I imagine there probably isn't that big of a distinction between what's grown in the ground on an a factory-style farm..
I never gave basil to him, but since Iím growing the stuff anyway, I thought I would give it a try. He used to love organic dandelion leaves, but I either canít always find it, he loses his taste for it when I can, and it goes to waste.

Itís probably the hardest part of owning a parrot, for me, anyway. How to feed the fresh stuff so he doesnít get bored with it, and it stays fresh.
