I have beautyberry (Callicarpa americana) growing outside my house. The wild birds love it, and so do my chickens and ducks. So I was wondering if I could put some in my cockatiel's cage for him to perch on and eat the berries. Would this be okay?

I found it very difficult to find any info on this particular berry being safe or toxic to cockatiels. I did find this website that lists it as non-toxic and safe to feed in moderation, but that's the only info I could find on it in relation to cockatiels.

Thank you! I've been searching for something that Squill will eat. He's extremely picky, but I thought since wild birds seem to love those berries so much, he might too.

We have two beautyberries and I have never felt sure enough too give too my domesticated birds however mine sometimes will go for oranges especially the white inside of the skin.
