* (1) FRUIT TREES: these species of fruit trees contain cyanogenic glycosides which are extremely toxic to parrots.

* (2) WEEPING FIG TREE: Despite the fact that this decorative plant is considered safe for humans, the sap of some species may contain irritants, whether in the bark, leaves or skin of fruit.

* (3) OAK: better to avoid it, even if well-dried oak is often used to make parrot toys without causing any problem (very high creosote rate). If you still decide to use it, never offer it fresh, but always very well dried. Acorns from oak trees, on the other hand, are extremely poisonous.
