My parrotlets eat everything!

I caught my two little girls eating the leaves of a peace lily and also pencil cactus without harmful effects. I didn't know they took a few nibbles until I saw the telltale green stains on their beaks and noticed a lacy effect on my plants!

safe flowers

I also found out that carnations are safe. My first cockatiel just loved them. I called a vet first though just to make sure before I let him have a flower.

Some outdoor plants can be safe

My Blue Crowned Conure really loves dandelion leaves and blossoms. I will pick them out in my yard and wash them before giving them to her. She loves to shred the flowers into a million pieces!
