Asparagus and cabbage, how long do toxic chemicals on last fruit trees
Hi, I accidentally ran across this site, IT IS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. I have a 6 1/2 (?) yr old lilac crowned Amazon, "Jack" - I rescued him from Humane Society; he had apparently been in 5 different homes in his 1st 5 1/2 yrs (?). While reading info on this site I ran across this:
(CAUTION: Never give your parrot alcohol, avocado or chocolate - these can kill your parrot! Also avoid asparagus, eggplant, cabbage, caffeine products, junk food, milk and cream, raw potato, and rhubarb (including the leaves).)
I have read about avocado, chocolate & rhubarb in various parrot books, but this is 1st time, I think, I have heard about the other items listed in that CAUTION. I grow asparagus and cabbage in my garden and have been giving Jack some of both since last yr. I will definitely not give him anymore, but have I harmed him? My puppy "Bentlee" a Yorkie loves raw asparagus also, will it hurt him?
Last question, which I have not been able to get an answer to is this. I have dwarf fruit trees in my little yard, along with various berries, veggies, etc. Up until about 3 or 4 yrs ago, I used various chemicals on my trees, not often, twice a yr at most, some yrs none (trees are no more than 8 yrs old) I have apple, pear, sweet cherry, peach, & nectarine, anyhow, are the branches & leaves toxic to Jack or do you think chemicals are gone? THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for your help and for this site. Carol
