Bird Safety

I pulled up some links to help some newbies out there who are looking into parrot owning, and those who already own a parrot and want to ensure the best and safest life for their bird.

The list of safe woods, to be used for perches or toys: Wood / Trees / Bushes Considered Safe for Birds


The list of safe spices: Aloe, Alfalfa, Ginger, Garlic (in moderation), Dandelion, Chamomile, and Cayenne.


The list of safe fruits:

Apples (cored), Papaya (birds love Papaya Seeds), Mango (pitted), Oranges (seeded), Cantaloupe (Cantaloupe seeds are thoroughly enjoyed by our flock), Melon, Star Fruit, Pineapple, Pomegranate, Berries (Strawberries, Raspberries, Blackberries, Blueberries, Gooseberries), Pears (cored), Peaches (pitted), Plums (pitted), Kiwi (peeled), Banana (peeled), Cherries (pitted), Cranberries, Grapefruit (seeded), Tangerines (seeded), Cactus Pear (peeled), Banana (peeled), Apricots (pitted).


List of safe vegetables:

Red Beets (peeled)- can be offered raw or steamed, Radishes, Turnips, Carrots, Cooked Sweet Potatoes, Radicchio, Endive, Mustard Greens, Beet & Turnip Greens, Dandelion Greens, Swiss Chard, Kale, Parsley, Basil, Cooked Red Potatoes, Peeled Squash (Acorn, Spaghetti, Butternut, Summer, Pumpkin, etc.) Can be offered raw or steamed. Note: the seeds are a big hit with parrots!), Green Beans, Tomato, Sweet Red & Green Peppers, Hot Peppers, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Broccoli Rabe, Turnip Greens, Snow Peas, Tofu, Fennel, Kohlrabi, Sugar Snap Peas, Artichokes - can be stuffed with pine nuts as a foraging toy, Corn (can be either cut in chunks or cut off the cob.

Fruit and vegetable lists were copied from www.greyfeathertoys.com/. www.birdsnways.com supplied the list of spices.
