Are all beans safe?

I'm starting a new diet soon for my two conures. The recipe calls for bean mix ("made from 16 beans soup mix ") but all I could find was a 5 bean mix. I figured this was fine and was going to start soaking them so I could cook them tomorrow but thought I would double check if all of them are safe. I seem to get confusing answers when I search this up and was looking to get others opinions on which ones (hopefully all) are safe (granted they are cooked properly). My mix has in it Pinto beans, Red chill beans, Chickpeas, Great northern beans, Black turtle beans. Now when I search if these ones are safe, nothing comes up for the Red chill beans, Great northern beans, Black turtle beans. I didn't even know some of the beans existed!
If anyone has experience or comments, it would be well appreciated (for a seriously paranoid parrot owner!)

Not all beans are safe, however the ones you listed should all be fine when well cooked.

Thanks for the response! I was really hoping they were okay as it was the only ones they had at the time. Thanks again!

Can someone post me pictures of the chili beans please as all I can find is that they are usually kidney or pinto beans in a chili sauce or paste.... I can not seem to find an actual bean called chili bean.

The black turtle beans tell me they are the same as ordinary black beans only they're smaller than the black beans.

The great northern beans say they are similar to cannellini or navy beans only different sizes.

So, the second two descriptions make sense but it is bothering me that all I can find for chili beans is various beans cooked in chili :think1:

Yeah they are kidney beans :) they are popular in chili here. I'm assuming this is a dry mix.

That's all I was getting for the chili beans as well, which concerned me. I will upload a couple pictures if that helps anyone. Not sure which ones are which

It is odd to call them chili beans I'll admit!
