I apologize if this is not a suitable question, but I have come up empty of answers in many google searches and facebook groups. I have two caique parrots and they are BIG chewers who need a constant supply of wood to keep their beaks trim and keep them happy. I live on 5 acres in central Florida and we have an abundance of palmettos of various types. The stalks are the perfect texture for satisfactory beak destruction. To my knowledge the woody stems/stalks are perfectly safe, but in an abundance of caution, I am trying to verify this. Now, we have several different kinds, and I have tried to educate myself on which is which, but they look so different at different stages, and yet the different varietyies have so many similarties. I can take some pictures, if there's a difference in wood safety. To be clear, I am talking about the "stalk" which is a green, hard and thick stem to which the frond is directly attached. If anyone can help me in determining if the stalks (the green stalks that the palms are attached to) are safe for parrots, I'd be extremely grateful. We usually have long lists of "safe wood for parrots" and unsafe woods, and I am not sure what makes some wood safe and some others not. Palm fronds are not on the list as either safe or unsafe, and other places I have sought info, such as parrot groups, just tell me "Don't use, why risk it?"
