Palm nut question
« on: May 19, 2016, 04:19:28 PM »

I have been reading a lot about how parrots like the palm nuts? 

Are these the red nuts that grow on some palm trees?  I have a palm tree like this in my back yard.  Is it safe to pick them and give them to Jake?

Just to add, there is a small nut inside the red shell.  I wonder if I should give him the whole thing and let him open the shell for the nut, or cut it off and just give him the nut?
