Hi, I keep hearing a lot of conflicting info on wether grapes are safe for birds. Is it completely safe, safe if the seeds and/or skin is removed or completely unsafe? I have a green cheek conure in case breed is a determining factor

They are safe; I would not offer the seed. They are just not very nutritious as they are sugary and not a lot of fiber. So would be a treat only. Remember that a grape is the size of their head so "only one" is a lot ;)

Definitely safe, you can leave the skin on if you like.

Burt gets a grape as a treat every now and then- they’ve got a lot of sugar and not much of anything else so I prefer to offer blueberries which Burt also loves.

Oh nice, so I'll basically treat it in the same way as I would with bananas or some other sugary fruit :)
