    Bell peppers,tomatos, avocados, cucumbers, and little squashes? Im asking becuz the local fruit stand gives me all kinds of random vegetables so out of a lot of kinds I was wondering if theses were ok.

    I dont know about the avocados, i'd be leary of feeding avocados.....check into that real well..
    maybe its just the avocado skin thats dangerous for birds though??..
    I was told by an avian vet to never feed birds avocados...
    chickens may be different than parrots though.. [​IMG]

    I was also told never to feed avocados when I had parrots...but I wasn't told that until after mine had been eating avocados happily and healthily for years...I wonder if it's just because of the seed being poisonous?
