Hmm, I've never heard that. Safe fruits, which include grapes, should always be fed in moderation because of high sugar content. However, I don't think it's accurate to say "no bird should ever eat grapes"

Could the grape danger be the possible seeds, similar to apple seeds?

This thread on Talk Cockatiels lists grapes as a safe food.
I'd stick with seedless grapes for your birds.

All fruits are high in sugar which is why they should be fed in moderation.

The list of safe foods for budgies is in the link below:

The advice on this thread in regard to grapes is more accurate than what they told you on the other site . My parrots have had grapes occasionally.

phew, I have been feeding pinto and poncho seedless grapes twice a week, now I don't feel so bad. I always cut out the insides of the grapes , as sometimes they say seedless but there's still a seed growing inside.

It was someone who posted on the talk cockatiel forums. He/she mentioned grapes are bad for all pets. Not sure why.

Unfortunately, not all posters on forums are as well versed in matters as they like to portray.
The individual was incorrect and you don't need to worry about giving your birds a grape occasionally.

I asked her why they are dangerous, maybe its something recent that happened or something.

My cockatiel has not been flying from perch to perch at all inside his cage. it is a fairly large cage, 26" x 32" x 54". Instead he climbs the cage walls from perch to perch. Is it because his wings are clipped, and when will his wings grow back ? I know he can fly because I let him outside of his cage once and he flew around a little.. I don't understand why he won't fly inside of his cage. It's more then big enough.

So here is Pablo drowning himself every time he drinks. I thought he would have been used to his water dish by now but I guess not.



Also he never flies in his cage I dont know why ;*(
