Default Red Cabbage

Hey everybirdie! I was searching the web, including our own TB, scouring the stickies on safe eats, and I just can't find anything on red cabbage. I did find out from other sources that the green counterpart is not toxic, however it runs along the same track as parsley or spinach in that it does not allow for proper absorption of the precious vitamin, calcium.

My question is: Is the red variety any better? I ask because we found a "salad" mix at a local grocery that's organic, and it's got their favs: broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. It also has lettuce in the bottom, as well as the red cabbage and yellow squash, which I'm pretty sure needs to be cooked first, am I right?

I would appreciate any help I can get! Thanks in advance!

Red cabbage is going to react the same way with regard to the absorption of calcium because it contains oxalic acid.
Cabbage (either color), like iceberg lettuce, contains few nutrients which is why they are not recommended.

Chard, Parsley and Spinach also contain oxalic acid but are sources of Vitamin A and other nutrients.

Yellow squash does not need to be cooked before giving it to your budgies.

Thanks Deborah! Oh, what about the seeds in the squash? I would assume they would need to be removed, right?

I've read on multiple sources that the seeds are fine, so I feed squash to Cosmo and Lulu along with the seeds (cooked though, as I didn't know you could feed it raw).

You don't have to remove the seeds from squash before giving it to the budgies.
