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.
Tomatoes and Potato are both from the nightshade family. Chances are the toxins in the leaves/stems/vines carry the same poisonous properties as deadly nightshade.

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

Wow, on the 1st page, fifth post it says cedar is toxic. Should we not use this for bedding in the cages lower droppings pan. Its not reachable by Tookie but we've always used this (the big bags of cedar bedding you can buy at Wally World) instead of newspapers, or pine bedding. We've never had them (thank God) but I've always read that cedar around the house is a great deterrent to bed bugs.

I believe the toxicity is related to ingestion only. If you can be sure they will never come into contact with it then it might be ok.

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

Sorry Goaler, but cedar, redwood & even pine chips/shavings have been linked to skin blistering and deaths of chicks and linked to plucking, barbering & self-mutilation in older birds.....

Actually, there is danger from these woods to other pets also, even though wally world, hardware stores, pet stores & virtually every online vendor sells peddles them on their shelves.....

Which link? This one http://www.parrotparrot.com/birdhealth/alerts.htm

That was posted 8 years ago, in the life of the internet, sometimes 8 days is too long for links.....the secret to finding specific information is to search that particular informational topic and ferret through all the unrelated garbage links.....if you look at the purveyors of the parrotparrot.com website, it is Rough Magic, an internet marketing firm that is apparently now using the site to post unrelated advertising (revenue producing advertising) that has nothing to do with what you were looking for...there are hundreds of thousands of those types of sites around the internet.....

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

Thank you Weco you guessed right - sorry, I really should have included the link I was talking about - I was a little emotional because this is the 1st time I have been on the forum since my beloved feathered friend passed from this life and I was kind of emotional and crying but had to post information I had found about ceramic coated pans.

Found a list of toxic or problem things on this website so here is the new direct link to the list

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

Thank you for this list. The link provided just kept me from making a horrible mistake! I just bought JoJo a hanging ball forging toy, filled it with millet and hung it in her cage. Reading the list, I saw this toy listed-and absolutely my new toy fell into the danger catagory! The size I got has holes the same size as jojo's head!
Again, thank you!
