Default Parsnip?

I've tried to look in the sticky library, and some other threads, but I must confess to being too tired at the moment to have a proper look.

Are parsnips safe for tiels? I'm trying to get Joey interested in a bigger variety of veggies, and have never thought about parsnips until I was cutting some for hubs and me for tonight.

I found a few articlescand threads on Dutch sites about people feeding cooked parsnip to their parrots. Though I think I remember reading that not everything that's safe for parrots, is also safe for tiels to eat?

Judging from my gut feeling alone, I would say it is probably safe. Parsnip is a root plant, closely related to carrots. Since carrots are safe to feed your tiel, I would think parsnip is too

I pretty much rely on this website to tell me what's safe and what's not, because Eclectus have a particular digestive system. But basically whatever is on the safe list on this website, I offer to my cockatiels as well:

Parsnip is on the safe list

Thanks. We have them from time to time and like to try new veggies with him, although he snubs most of them.
