Tonight I made cube steak, peas, and a thai sesame seed pasta packet for dinner. I took a small bowl and put a few pieces of pea and a few kernals of corn in it for Kenya because she is out of her cage and after landing on my dish last night, I thought it might keep her attention while I was eating. I was wrong. She did pick at it though. She was playing around and decided she was going to land on my fork (again...she landed on it last night too). Then actually landed on my plate. Is this safe??? For me???? She then decided to taste the pasta thing. Is this safe for her and me??? The pasta had seasoning and flavoring added to it. She seems to like it. She liked the peas too. I made a quick look up while cooking to make sure she could have it. I just want to make sure she will be ok. If not, I'll remove it so she can't get to it anymore. I didn't think she would go for it as she showed no interest in plain pasta when I tried giving her some.

I'm sure a taste or two will not hurt her you just want to watch that she does not eat to much because of the salt.

Thank you. She only ate a little of it....maybe 5 bites like 3 times and guess she had enough cause she hasn't touched it since the last time she took so bites.

They actually force you to eat healthy, cause they think that what your eating is what they should be able to eat. I don't let them walk in the plate but if they want some of mine I put it on the table next to the plate when they decide that they want some. And cause I know this can happen I cook my stuff with less salt and low oil and healthy. As long as you cook helthy thay can have spices like garlic and basil and peppers.

yea i dont use alot of salt but some things just have high sodium in them ... olive oil i cant imagine being bad for anything haha but i dont give them oily stuff ...

we should actually be very very careful about allowing out birds to eat things we have bitten from .. our saliva can be very dangerous for thm ... we could have germs or virus or bacteria and it could be so dangerous for them .. is make sure not to give them stuff i bit off of ...

I totally agree with pretty bird and helwa be very careful of both.salt can cause liver and kidney damage,vets recommend no salt period.

I got my first keet late yesterday aftrenoon. He has perched on my finger already with my gently coching but I don't think he has eaten or drank anything. I have given him time alone and have spend quiet time talking, whisleing and singing to him. I offered him a tiny piece of apple late last night but he did not want it. what other foods (fresh) can they have?
