I feed mine green split peas, black turtle beans and brown and pinto beans. I have never heard of Flagolet or haricot beans. I do cook mine a minimum of thirty minutes to be sure they are safe. I hope that helps.

Mix some veggies and maybe some brown rice or cous cous and they will fight you to get some.

I make a mixture of rice, carrots, peas, corn, green beans, lima beans, chick peas, and lentils and give it to Rocco with his pellets. I'm wondering if I should cut back on the lentils and perhaps other beans, as they are high in purines and Rocco's uric acid level was elevated, though not seriously. I've had to cut back on these and other foods high in purines in my own diet because of elevated uric acid levels, which gave me many attacks of gout, and a few kidney stones. I really don't know if birds are susceptible to that or not.

Yes, Walter. they can get gout. If you do a Google search for "avian gout" you can read more about it. This article seems to sum most of it up.

Thanks for the info Charlie. The last thing I want is for Rocco to endure the sort of pain I've gone through. I've been getting him to drink more water this past week by giving some to him from a glass while we're on the couch. I'll be following up with the vet.

well what a difference we have a sane (nearly) child back
wow he loves the beans and watching him eat a kidney bean is great. the rice is a revelation as well. and now he has a new game when I change his water he loves to drink out of the cup as long as I pour the water down into his beak. like it comming of a leaf.
