Just wondering if things like garlic are safe for my tiel? He's 5 months old, male, named Sam. He wanted some of my garlic naan but I was unsure, so gave him a tiny bit(no bigger than my thumb) with no garlic on it. For future reference, is garlic okay or no?

A quick google search:
Garlic adds flavor to our dishes but it can cause problems in parrots. Garlic is related to onions and has similar chemical compounds.

When in doubt don’t feed it is my motto :)

You can make bird safe bread that both u and ur bird can enjoy, made of almond flour , bananas, seeds, and veges .

Ah thank you! I'm glad I didn't feed it to him then; he very very rarely has bread so he was happy without it anyway :)
I'll try that suggestion for bread too!
