There's been some debate lately about whether tomato is bird safe or not. So if you decide to feed it feed it very sparingly just to be on the safe side. Tiels do not generally like tomatoes anyways. Wink

Eh, different birds have different preferences. I had one bird obsess over bananas and all my others have loathed them. I am sure that somewhere out there is a birdie who adores them, just not mine, or apparently, yours! ^_^
