Re: Parrot-Safe Products

I have one question regarding foods.
Are tomatoes safe or not safe for our birds?

I've looked though various sources and I'm getting mixed answers. Some say they're safe, others say to avoid them.
In a cockateil care book I've read through tomatoes are on both the safe and not safe list! (Contradicting information in the same source)

Can anyone clear it up and give a definitive answer?

Re: Parrot-Safe Products

I have also heard conflicting information. From what I have found, tomatoes and citris are "safe" for our birds in that they are not poisonous. However they are very acidic and too much can be unhealthy for the bird. Hence, the conflicting information. They are safe AND should be avoided as there are better options.
Happy Parront of Yoda and Trigger. Master Yoda is a Green Cheek Conure. Trigger is a Congo African Grey
