What Is Dill?

Dill is a fragrant herb that belongs to the celery family. It has a unique flavor, with some notes of anise and parsley, and is commonly used in soups, stews, sauces, salads and other culinary dishes. The leaves are known as dill weed and the seed can also be used for seasoning. This herb is native to southern Europe but it has spread across many climates due to its popularity in cooking.

Can Cockatiels Eat Dill?

Yes, cockatiels can eat dill safely; however it should only be offered occasionally as part of their balanced diet. Since herbs like dill contain essential vitamins such as Vitamin A & C they can benefit your bird’s health if fed sparingly. If you decide to feed your pet cockatiel dill make sure it’s fresh or dried – never give them any processed versions which may contain added preservatives or sugar that could be harmful to them. Additionally, since dill contains oils that may not agree with all birds’ digestive systems always introduce new foods gradually while monitoring your bird’s response carefully before offering larger amounts on a regular basis.
