Cooked beans safe for birds?

by Sandra

Please could you tell me specifically what beans are safe for parrots. We have a conure, we have been giving him lima beans, broad beans, green beans, haricot beans.
We had been told these are safe if cooked, but I have just read that some of these are not safe. Our bird loves all veg with added chili and cumin seeds but I wouldnt want to make him ill in the long run.

All beans are safe (except caster beans and of course they are toxic to all animals and people).
