On each side about feeding budgies (not general parrots) I had Red they shouldn' t eat broccoli

Hi I've been trying to look this up but I cannot find anything except that Broccoli is Good for budgies. In the case of my own pellet-rejecting budgies, Broccoli is one of the few veggies they like -- (they love it, in fact) -- so, I would hate to take it away unnecessarily.

Searching the internet for "Broccoli" and "Budgies" the ONLy links I can find All say Broccoli is Good.

Do you have links to references for any controversy / problems about Broccoli?

??? (thanks in advance)

I know a few years back I read to limit cruciferous veg--I have read this a lot and broccoli is in that family-- but I will have to find a source to confirm it again. It may have been misinformation or an outdated belief..DK

No, I don't, they all were in Polish. They all had information that cabbage isn't good and Everything from this genus. They never mentioned a broccoli but this is cabbage genus afaik. Maybe I missunderstood them all, they never mentioned a broccoli both - good or not so thought they mentioned it as cabbage genus. In the past my dad gave my budgies a broccoli without my knowledge and they hated it
