Again I cannot thank you enough for all your time and attention9n to my concerns! I guess I can give back the stainless pan I borrowed from a neighbor I will replace my cookware when I can, but meanwhile it is good to know that as long as I am very careful I can go back to cooking our food and Snoopy's together!

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

Actually I do have a whole set of cast iron skillets inherited from our mothers. Kind of hard to cook up a pot of beans in a skillet, though.

Now I am worried about the baby's toys. Have just read (from someone who wants to sell me toys) horror stories about birds dying of heavy metal poisoning (from lead based paint or pressure treated wood) or formaldehyde (from tanned leather). Unfortunately there are not a lot of bird toys available here, and what there are most probably come from China. At this point I have taken away everything except her mirror. Any thoughts?

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

So does this mean that apple juice is bad for them?

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

Apple juice is fine, as long as its natural, no added sugar or chemical additives, its the seeds of the apple that are the toxic part, skins too should be discarded as their hard for birds to digest

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

So here is a question. What about anodized bronze? Im trying to get my aviary finished and I need to sort out a way to hook my nest box to the back wall of the aviary. Before I go to bunnings my boyfriend handed me these bits of metal that he thinks will work but they are anodized bronze and I don't want to use them if they are going to be a hazard since I will be taking the nestbox out when it's not breeding season and the metal will still be attached to the back wall. I think its aluminium thats been bronze anodized. My other problem is that most things you can buy are zinc coated and they are a definate no. I really want to put my ringnecks into thier new home but I need to get this done first so I'm not drilling holes into the aviary with the birds in it. Help?

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

The list of toxic items has moved, the link no longer works.
Also, I seen Marijuana in there.. I myself is known to partake in some of this every now and then... and if the bird as in a separate closed off room with an open window and fan would it be okay? I do not want to harm my soon to be Parrot (I say soon to be because I do not own one yet )

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

I have read that pot smoke can cause depression in birds, but beyond that I believe that the ingestion of the plant was the main thrust of the article/posting above. And I just want to put this out there for my own opnions sake...If ANY of you are getting ur animals stoned by blowing pot smoke into their faces, what are u thinking? Would you do that to a trusting child?

I did not plan on doing any of that. I just wanted to know if it would be deadly to smoke it in the same house as the bird, because I know that Cigarette smoke is very very bad for birds and was wondering if it had the same effect.
It seems from what you said it is OK as long as he doesn't eat it or me blowing it in the birds face (Though this will never happen, I'd crack my friends right upside the head if they ever tried it).

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

I just wanted to state, like oatmeal, all birds love it. I don't worry about adding a little milk, margrin, and sugar to it, because my parrot will not eat the whole thing anyhow. Generally if Sassy see's me eating, well she wants it too. Things like avocodo, alcohol, chocolate, leafy vegies, I avoid giving her. Leafy vegies in most birds, gives them the runs. Or giving Sassy part of a piece of bread off my sandwich.It is good to know what is good and hazardous but eating oatmeal without milk and sugar or with it is a bit.. The birds are members of your family and they want what you want. Treat them like a member and if in question, well ask a smarter person on birds.
