With all the recent discussions on PTFE/Teflon I thought it would be great to have a list of manufacturers and products that are safe to use around our Parrots. I'm waiting to hear back from a few companies reguarding hair dryers and will post them as soon as I hear back but if anyone has anything they can add to the list (not just teflon-free products) please feel free

Re: Parrot-Safe Products

THANK YOU PARROTQUEEN FOR THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:

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.

Re: Parrot-Safe Products

Re: Parrot-Safe Products

As they say everything in moderation : I’d rather not risk it when there are better foods out there.
Very interesting link below, worth reading into.

[QUOTE=pmonsivais;86539]I have a yellow blue macaw. 1yr old name Rio. I am new to this. My question is why does he shake. Is there something wrong.? HELP
HE EATS GOOD. He drinks water and I think maybe its mites or someking of bug. May I am doing something wrong. Maybe the fan or he is cold? I am worried. Another question How do I take him to the Vet if I have too. In what. I am confused.
