Leaves


Are Eggplant’s leaves safe for Budgies? Cause mine ate almost half of a big one in my garden…


Answer:

Hi Alex,

Eggplant is generally considered to be something you should not feed your bird, although opinions vary. I am not sure about the leaves. Rule of thumb is do not feed them anything that you are not sure about. If they seem to be fine, then possibly they did not actually consume any of the leaves or they are not toxic. But I would not let them have any in the future.

Happy Holidays!
