Re: Bird Safe Fresh Foods & Toxic Food Lists + Sprouts

I have also started picking out the pine nuts that are in their shells. They are just as bad at containing aspergillosis as peanuts. I just go to the health food store and get bags of cashews,shelled pine nuts,almonds, and a few shelled Brazil nuts. They have a lot of organic nuts there. I give her some of these with her food treat in the morning.

Oh yes, this is most definitely allowed, and actually much appreciated, especially with fantastic threads such as this one.

As a matter of fact, I just STUCK this thread, so it won't ever get lost in the crowd.

Re: Bird Safe Fresh Foods & Toxic Food Lists + Sprouts

I asked this on another thread but haven't got an answer. The ones I had went rotten but I'd still like to know for next time: are the tops of radishes, the green leaves and stems, OK for macaws?

Re: Bird Safe Fresh Foods & Toxic Food Lists + Sprouts

If carrot tops are fine, I don't see why radish tops wouldn't be? I've seen where radish sprouts are recommended, so if those are ok, the tops should be, too!

Re: Bird Safe Fresh Foods & Toxic Food Lists + Sprouts

Thanks guys. Rudy has taken to refusing just about anything green (except for parsley flakes >.< ) so I'm running out of options of what fresh green stuff to feed him.

Definitely! I saw it linked somewhere else and was like "wow, this should be a sticky!" this thread covers some of the most common dietary questions like: What is safe and what will kill my bird... LOL

Thanks again!

What about making a mash diet? A little of every color? Red, green yellow, orange vegetables... some healthy grains and legumes and a small amount of fruit?

Would he eat something like that?

Re: Bird Safe Fresh Foods & Toxic Food Lists + Sprouts

Hi. I am new to this forum but not a novice with parrots and cockatoos.

There is no nutritional reason to give a bird any milk/dairy products. Birds are not mammuals thus do not have the flora to digest milk products. I am lactose intolerate so I can imagine what it would be like to be a tiny bird eating milk that cannot be digested. Every board certified avian veterinarian I have spoken with has said NO to milk and NO to lactase or other probiotics that are not avian specific.
