Dangerous foods NOT to be fed to our birds

Post by Ronda on Wed Mar 12, 2008 2:58 pm

Some foods are on the do-not-feed list. These include:

* High-fat junk food (potato chips, doughnuts, etc.)
* Avocado (guacamole)
* Chocolate
* Alcohol or caffeine
* Fruit pits
* Persimmons
* Table salt
* Onions
* Apple seeds
* Mushrooms
* Garlic


While not a food, grit is something people think all birds need. They do not. If it is overeaten, grit impaction can occur in the digestive system. Finches and canaries may benefit from a couple of grains of grit every couple of months, but most budgies, cockatiels, and other parrots do not need it.

Some items on this list such as the garlic and the onions need to be in moderation and not raw. There have been birds that have died from eating raw garlic. But if we were to eat the equivalent of what that bird ate than it may be deadly to us as well. Some things in large quantities just aren't good for anyone. It is up to you if you want to chance taking feeding anything on the danger list. We are just posting these foods to give you an idea of what is too dangerous and what foods are at risk of a bad outcome.
