    Or maybe a better question is: Is it harmful for them to do so?

    I chop oranges up into small bits & they chomp them up, & they are fine.
    Lemons & limes they didnt eat....

    I was given a bunch of pomegranites a couple of days ago, I picked
    out the red parts (what are they called-the parts you eat) & they ate all of them....

    I go by the parrot rule: No chocolate & no avocado.
    Otherwise, let 'em get a variety of fruit & veggies, generally chopped up, sometimes cooked.

    Thanks! I find that buying all the fruits & veggies for the peas, gets me eating healthier too.

    Mine are a little strange and rarely like to eat citrus, but they go wild for tomatoes, grapes, and blueberries.
