We give it without any problems.
It grows next to the avairy wire, so they keep it trimed
Basal, mint, rosemary, chives also grow around the avairies

Tiki likes to make soup out of his water,everything I give him to eat goes in the water, he loves to have dried pineapple and it gets dipped in the water then he eats it, I love watching him when he drops it in there and hes trying to get it out with his foot, he wont give up till he gets it boack out again, I love the determination. So with his food dipping all day he gets his water changed 2 times a day.
Is it ok to give them dried fruit within moderation as I know its higher in sugar than fresh fruit?
