Re: Toxic or not?

Heres a link to most of the Toxic and Non-toxic woods to parrots.
Bird; Birds: Safe, Toxic Trees, Woods. Safe Tree Wood. Parrots. Parrot cages.
As you can see on the link Russian olive is a SAFE wood.

Quote:
Birch is Betula species. LEAVES & BARK contain salicylates and a few substances ... . The low concentration ... Birch should be considered safe for natural wood perches. The seeds inside the cones are a special goodie safe for birds to eat.
That said, I don't think I am brave enough to give that to my parrot. I am too much of a worry wart, I'd rather be safe than sorry. LOL

I say, if in doubt, leave it out.
