Toxic Plants for Cockatiels

I love my pets and plants more than anything in this world. And one of my biggest satisfying achievements is when I see them both growing strong and healthy.

My 8 years old cockatiel, who goes by the name Calypso, is so precious to me. As a person who admires nature and animals, I love to see them both together. For that, I dug and asked many professionals about the safest plants for cockatiels and the most toxic ones.

Cockatiel’s origin is Australia. Australia is rich in different kinds of plants; toxic and nontoxic for different kinds of species. You’d think that the birds would know which is which, right? but not really. They can only recognize only a few toxic plants.

Toxic plants don’t necessarily mean that they are deadly. some toxic plants can only cause some side effects which are not really dangerous. However, I wouldn’t want to see my little bestie suffering in pain. For that, all the harmful plants are a must to be kept away from him.

I am also one who likes to decorate and keep my bird in a cage full of plants so that it wouldn’t feel empty to him. I also have a lot of house plants and whenever I let my bird hang out freely, he starts nibbling on them. And of course, that is a very normal behavior because they are curious by nature.

Not all toxic plants are deadly. Each one may cause a different side effect. however, that does not mean that it is okay to let our bird pets to nibble on them. always seek their health as a priority. Besides, you need to always watch your little birdy and survey their behaviors, poop, and physical state. in case you notice anything new and weird, you have to take your feathered friend to the vet RIGHT AWAY!
