Thanksgiving dinner
4 Attachment(s)
So for thanksgiving this year, I have some questions about a few things. I'm curious to know if they can have fresh cranberries and pomegranate arils? Also, what are the big no no's for food? Anything I should restrict from Peatri? I know he'll be disappointed about not getting any marshmallow topping, :laughing: Just kidding!

And just to be on the safe side, they can have turkey, right?

So I looked on like, 3-4 different sites, and it looks like I can give them the cranberries and pomegranate arils. I'm still a bit curious as to what kinds of thanksgiving type foods they absolutely can not have. Also how to prepare the cranberries for them? And about the turkey, I can't seem to find organic, but I found some all natural stuff, I'll post pictures later.

I've never actually prepared a Thanksgiving dinner with turky, etc. for my budgies and don't intend to this year either. :laughing2:

My birds will simply be getting a special egg food dish with some veggies for their Thanksgiving. (In addition to their regular foods)

Make sure you don't have any additives on/in the cranberry dish. I'd just boil a few cranberries, drain and let cool to room temperature before serving.

Hi Kristen,
Just learnt a new word - had to google 'arils'!

We don't celebrate thanksgiving over here, though for Christmas dinner my budgie will no doubt have brussel sprouts added to his food.
