Can birds eat pistacio nuts??

Postby wishiwere » Jul 03, 2007 6:25 pm

We were given about 5 lbs of unsalted pistaicio nuts by a restaurant that just closed. Honestly, I only like them salted, and far few than 5 lbs in several years! :lol:

Can wild birds eat them does anyone know?

No, in fact they are in snacks for pet birds. Just as long as they are unsalted, any nuts are good for birds. They contain essential natural fats they need.

I hate pet birds! Love my birds that are in my yard though. Our dd had a Red Headed Conure. I hated that bird!! Made her put back in cage whenever I was there.
