GCC and grapes

I have read information that says that Grapes are like poison to GCC and other information that says I feed my GCC Grapes and they love them. I would like to address the forum on this. Can I give my GCC Grapes? Thanks

Re: GCC and grapes

What's the source of the information where you read that about grapes?

Don't believe everything you read on the Internet unless you can find at least two authoritative sources corroborating a claim.

Regular purple/green/etc grapes are fine for conures. I've fed them to mine on many occasions.

Re: GCC and grapes

Yep, as aboth - they can eat grapes. Some people say to not feed grapes from the shops because they have the biggest quantity of chemistry of all fruits. I don't really know how it looks in other countries

Re: GCC and grapes

I stopped feeding grapes to my GCC because of the mess. Couldn't really tell if she actually ate them or not there was so much mess in the cage.

Re: GCC and grapes

By boys love grapes... but they are poison to my walls, lol! Yoda takes each chunk of grape, then shakes his head vigorously to create his own Jackson Pollack artwork on the wall by his cage.

Re: GCC and grapes

in moderation due to sugar content---a grape to a cockatiel is like 200+ to a human (or something like that)
