Peanuts are rich in protein and vitamin E, they even have some “healthy” fats. Although birds can eat peanuts (cooked/roasted and no-salt), it is not recommended to feed too much to birds because peanuts contain aflatoxin. Eating too much aflatoxin can increase the incidence of liver cancer.
Many bird owners are having confusions about whether or not to give their pet birds rice in any form. There is a rumor/myth that uncooked rice hits the bird’s tummy and then swells causing its stomach to explode. No worries, rice can NEVER kill a bird, no matter the rice is cooked or raw. For sure, rice cannot be the main food for your birds. You can combine unsalted rice with good-for-birds fruits and veggies so as to let your birds get various nutrition.
