I bought a sage plant that smells like heaven, and was thinking of putting it in the babies' cage for them to nibble at the leaves.
Is it safe? Every time I see info about herbs in the forum I am never sure if it relates to the dried plant or the live one.
And on the subject of herbs: the famous "Herb Salad" is made of dry or fresh herbs? They don't sell it in the UK and I was thinking of making it myself, but... dry or fresh???

The commercial herb salads that I've seen were dry. For example: http://www.twinbeaksaviary.com/herbsalad.html Beware of hype lol.

There's not much info available about the safety of fresh sage. I have a type of sage planted in my front yard (Salvia greggii) and the rabbits don't touch it, which says a lot; we have seriously hungry bunnies out here. If you know the species of your sage plant, you could google the scientific name along with the word toxicity to see what the results say. But in the absence of any other information, I wouldn't feed it.
