Question Question about Basil and parsley

Hello all

I have read that basil and parsley are good for our little friends.

Now I have an indoor herb garden and was wondering if it would be ok to put the herbs close to his cage so some leaves poke in and he can munch on them anytime he wants?

Good idea? Bad Idea? Barry put down the pipe?

Barry

If you don't use chemicals and limit the parsley I don't see anything wrong with it. I know parsley is okay only in limited quantities. I'm not sure if Basil needs to be limited since I haven't had to look that one up because no one stocks fresh Basil where I live.


ETA - be careful with the soil as well some of the modern day soils have chemicals in them.

Thank you, as this is all indoor herbs I have no chemicals at all on them, I dehydrate my herbs and use them in my day to day cooking.

I will try and see, right now I have a sprig of parsley in the cage and he is not even looking at it lol

He may get curious and take a nibble! I see no reason why you couldn't put the herbs by his cage, personally I think that's a nice little convenient snack bar

Best of luck getting him to eat his greens!

Hello, my guys love having Basil, thyme, parsley and sprouts.
Parsley in limited amounts as it can inhibit calcium uptake. Also have a calcium bell available at all times. Sounds like a win situation all around.
