chives?? please help!

Are chives safe??? I could have sworn I read they are safe somewhere but now I am seeing they are not and I am terrified. I put some in his food and I am not home right now. I told the person taking care of him to immediately stop feeding him the new food. Did I mess up? Should I ask my brother to get him to a vet ASAP? He has 3 different foods right now and only ONE them has the chives in it but I can't remember which. I know for sure which one DOESNT so he can still eat that but I don't have the notecard that has which chop has which foods. I'm really scared please help! There's a chance he hasn't even eaten any yet but I cannot remember which chop had it.

update: he's only eaten type 2 and type 3 of the chop, both of which do not have chives.

edit: nevermind there's a chance he might have eaten type 1 still trying to confirm

edit: I don't know I think the chives was in type 2?? i think my brother misread. I don't know I don't know what to do.

Re: chives?? please help!

How much did he actually eat? From doing some reading, it sounds like they *can* cause red blood cells to rupture. Can you call your vet to see what he says?

Re: chives?? please help!

the vet is closed right now but you bet i will be in the morning

he wouldn't have eaten a ton because we didn't put a lot in his chop compared to the rest.

I'm starting to second guess myself if I even put chives in
I wish I were just home so i could check

do you know if I called a store if they could bring up my receipt and see what I bought? rip

Re: chives?? please help!

what is red blood cell rupture? what does that entail? how do I fix it if it does happen? what do I DO? how do I detect it?

Re: chives?? please help!

Okay, according to the world parrot trust, it is called hemolitic anemia.
Found this:

https://www.exoticpetvet.net/avian/onions.html
Still looking for symptoms.

Found this:

https://avianandexoticvets.com/anemi...nd-exotic-pets

I think that since it is a form of anemia, there would be signs of lethargy. That is just a guess, however. I am anxious to hear what the vet says.
I hope everything will be okay.

Re: chives?? please help!

is there anything I can give him that would elevate his red blood count before any symptoms possibly show? I know with humans iron/proteins would help but I don't know how I would give that to a parrot or if it would even help

Re: chives?? please help!

I told my brother to watch for lethargy and check on him frequently

Re: chives?? please help!

I wouldn't do anything until your vet has weighed in. Hopefully he didn't even eat any, and if he did it sounds like a small amount.
Maybe someone else can chime in who has experience with this and be of more help.
He is still acting normal? Maybe it wasn't chives you bought. They smell strong when you chop them.

Re: chives?? please help!

I chopped up a lot of other herbs too and I'm suffering from allergies so it's debatable. My brother said he was acting fine a few hours ago and if it is in the food he has eaten, he would have eaten it for both his meals today.

Re: chives?? please help!

I'm glad to hear he is acting normally. If Lincoln is like my Ekko, he picks and chooses through his chop so he may not have even eaten any if it was in there.
Please update on what your vet says and how he's doing tomorrow. Sending good thoughts his way!
