"Too" feed or not to feed?

Excessive amounts of Cooked and Raw Onions can be toxic to your bird. Onions contain the chemical n-propyl disulfide which denatures hemoglobin. This will in turn destroy Red Blood Cells. Causes: Anemia, Jaundice, Bloody Urine. Note: Be cautious if feeding cooked onion in small amounts.

I have a 5 yr. old U-2 named Tootie that ate a peice of potatoe cake once. Within a few hours she began passing bloody stools.Luckily, she was OK the next day.I've often wondered if garlic is safe for birds.All of my birds love anything with garlic in it,especially hush puppies. So far, there hasn't been any problems. Any thoughts on garlic?..

Jerry, if I find a list of good/bad foods can we post it around here somewhere? That way we can have it for quick reference?

Oninons are also bad for dogs. Don't have a cat so I don't know. Onions, as stated on Pet Project , a tv show, in small amounts are worse than alcohol(chocolate, onions, alcohol was the actuall rating in badness, not very scientific I know but I saw the show along time ago so I don't remember)So it's safe to say that you shouldn't feed onions to any of your pets, just to be safe.

My Molluccan loves goulash but, he always leaves the onions.I guess he knows what is best.Do you think they contaminate the pasta,tomatos and cabbage since they all cook together.
