Potatoe is fine as well as tomatoes (well washed of course), but keep the leaves, vines, stems away they are highly toxic.

Right on the money Tracy!

A potato, if cooked, is fine (like the mashed you described). A tomato, is fine whether cooked or raw. The leaves, vines, and stems, are not good... it's a fruit thing (and a tomato is a fruit)...but the fruit itself is fine with a tomato.

Veggies, like a potato - cook.

If you're concerned, and even if you're not, talk with your vet. The nutrition information is only a guideline, not ever an absolute.

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

Two questions> I have a bamboo plant in the house. Is it safe for birds if ingested?

Second> I have made sure my pots are not nonstick coating, but how do I know if my appliances are dangerous. Also, I recently moved in with a new bf and he uses a plug in skillet all the time for cooking (around 200-325degrees). I think it might have a nonstick surface> should I get rid of it or will it be safe to use at low temperatures?

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

let me tell you what I got rid of when we go the birds ... I got rid of all non-stick cooking surfaces - cookie/baking sheets (which isn't a big deal, I never liked non-stick cookware anyway), we use our George Forman grille OUTSIDE ONLY ... and our electric skillet when bye-bye too! The only surfaces we have in our kitchen now are Stainless Steel, Stone, Cast Iron, Glass ... if in doubt DO NOT USE IT!! No sense in taking any unnecessary risks.

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

I also think that where you keep your birds has a lot to do with whether or not to throw out the nonstick cookware. If your birds are in the kitchen, then I'd take some precautions..but if your birds are in another area of the house, and it's well ventilated, then I wouldn't throw anything away.

Bamboo is safe for birds

Yeah, for the most part ... Avocado and Chocolate are two HUGE NO-NOs (along with alcohol) something else consider is that a lot of fruits are good for your bird, but some of the seeds aren't ... Apples for example, the flesh and pulp is good for birds, but don't let them eat the seeds, there are trace amounts of Cyanide in apple seeds and they could make your bird sick, or even worse -

The same goes for Papaya. So scoop out the black seeds before feeding it to your birds.

Smile Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

Wow! Thank you for these information, I am sure that a lot of owners both old and new would find these information very valuable. Sadly, there are a lot of things that a Parrot is allergic to.
