    Thank you BlueFeather. So I can't just throw them the leaves. I have to peel the covering and then probably mix it then just extract the juices. A very tedious job for a guy like me.

    THE article actually says that the leaves are safe to eat, they just usually arent,"Essentially, the leaves of aloe vera are often for external uses only, they are not meant to be taken in. But with the study of Bejar and Colapo, it’s now clear that it’s safe for animal intake." they in fact contain 75 different nutrients, I would say you could just throw them in to the birds, all it would do is add more vitamins and minerals to their diet,

    you of course wont know exactly how much they are getting but by this article i would say it would be beneficial to the birds
