Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

Hi guys ,
thanks for the welcome.
Just been on line checking out pots in argos guffaw my OH is on a golf break in tenerife...he is home tomorrow to a bl**$y big cage and a little raptor.

I am in love , she arrived to day and I am calling her Honey. It may well be male ..but if he is, he is in touch with his feminine side so wont mind name.

She is 5mnths arrived said hallo ,pecked dog on nose and spent day touring with myself or my son.
I sent her to bed at 8 she was knacked. Wow.. dont they poop BIG and often.Just as well I muck out my stable ... loads of practice. Can i put it on my roses ?
I had already scared myself shtlss reading the "how to kill ur parrot page"
thank God I decided to take her b4 I read it.
Well now Im off to bed but i think Iwill be too excited to sleep. Jings will I ever grow up?

Is it worth finding out sex if only having one?
I took advice and agreed as a newbie to parrots and only room for one cage I would turn down offer of two. However I hung a mirror on wll behind cage and I saw her clucking to her self....Hope that not a bad thing.
K

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

You can train Honey to be toilet trained, going in one spot. Bucc is now pretty good and will go on his Java Tree or Playarea, both are good as they are so easy to clean.

Have never tried it on my roses, but maybe I'll give it a go in the summer. Hmmm wonder how much of the stuff I'll have to collect. lol.

Finding out the sex, I think is a personal choice, some people do and some people don't, If you're happy with either sex then that the main thing. Bucc is a single Grey (at the moment) and he will sit by his mirror talking away to it. Telling it "No Bite" lol (the grey in the mirror must be such a stinker, and Bucc is trying so hard to make him good)

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

In the toxic list, is it toxic if they munch on the plant or if the plant is just around? I just brought home a little daffodil plant because I love them in the spring, then read your list and got a little nervous. I am thinking its toxic if they just eat them, but would like confirmation. Thanks

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

Yeah Christy only if they eat them, then they are really nasty. Just keep Hamlet well away from them. Its got something to do with the bulbs. We lost a Rabbit after he had eaten some Tulips a few years back. Not sure if it would have the same fatal results on birds, but best not to take the chance.

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

Thanks. I will keep them out of birdie reach. That is one of the perks of having him clipped. We can control where he goes. I'll put them well above his level.

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

I think the only plant on the list that is 'toxic' for them to be around would be marijuana b/c of the smoke and such. So yeah Christy, I'm sure you're safe as long as you don't start smoking your daffodil

Re: Toxic List for our Birds.

Hm..I just looked at this list and was a little worried when I saw potatoes and tomatoes...we feed our birds mashed potatoes all the time and we've given them tomatoes before too...are the edible parts of the plant toxic or just the leaves/stems? Our birds have never shown any reaction to eating these things?
