Cooked or raw veggies
by: Angela

You can feed both cooked and raw veggies and fruit to your bird. My bird loves corn, broccoli, string beans and peas. She also loves mashed potatoes but doesn't get them too often. If you feed your bird fresh fruit, be sure to wash thoroughly or peel it. My bird loves apples and grapes, doesn't care for bananas or any citrus fruits but all birds are different. Please check the Toxic Foods list on this website to know what NOT to give your bird, such as chocolate, avocado or onion. I gave my bird some raw green pepper once and she didn't feel well after eating it so I didn't give it to her again.
