    Safe play garden idea?

    Hi, I want to make a mini indoor garden for my birds! I would use a wide, shallow pot and it would have plants and a bowel of water in the middle, so the birds would be free to splash, forage, and poop. Of course, I have concerns about safety. Dirt - I would get dirt from my garden and rinse...

    Chia plants

    We all know chia seeds are safe to feed to our parrots, either as a seed or as a sprout. My question regarding this is, are chia plants safe as well? I've been wanting to decorate my bird room with some safe plants, and I just stumbled upon this idea on tik tok. Could chia plants be ok?

    Parrots eating soil

    Hey everyone, I have several houseplants - all of which are supposed to be safe for birds. Mostly ferns, Sansevieria and a couple of other random plants. My birds, of course, like to chomp on them from time to time which should be fine as I wash them and try to make sure they're as "clean" as...

    Is industrial hemp safe for birds?

    I'll start off with getting one thing clear. As you may or may not know, industrial hemp is NOT marijuana. Industrial hemp is a tall, stocky plant that has NO psychoactive properties! Unfortunately the US government didn't know the difference between marijuana and hemp and outlawed both plants...

    Looking for a tree for my budgie

    Hi, I was thinking of getting an indoor tree/plant that my budgie would be able to chew on and play in. Right now all she has is the money tree (which is small) and she has nearly destroyed it. I've been growing some millet seeds in my back yard but it'll take a while. Do you folks have any...

    Is Camellia Japonica safe?

    My aunt managed to propagate a few branches from her Camellia Japonica plant (aka: Japanese Tea Roses), and I've been dying to have a rose like hers. But, I've been looking around and can't tell if they're safe or not. I heard that Camellia is safe, but I'm not sure if Camellia Japonica is a...

    Aviary/greenhouse: advice?

    Hi I'm new to the forum, but I do lurk on occasion, as I constantly try to make sure I'm doing the best by my little lovebirds at all times. I'm a fairly new owner; I inherited 2 peach-faced lovebirds in January 2012 when my father's girlfriend died. She was a smoker and kept them in a small...

    Safe/Unsafe Plants

    So I keep reading different things on different sites concerning a couple plants I'd like to get to spruce up my cockatiels' play area/cage. Specifically, dracaena (all species), grapevine, honeysuckle, and jade. It's like every other site that says something different. I'm hesitant to...
