Good article, I did not know almonds tend to be high in aflatoxin.  Guess it depends on the area they come from and the weather conditions.

Yes, I was unaware of issue with almonds and pistachios. Only aware about peanuts. I missed that in article. Thanks for pointing it out.

Honestly it is pretty darn complicated to.feed our birds. Recalling how confused I was about a year ago when consulting many sources and trying to figure out what to feed and what my pionus parrots would eat. It is tough when they are stubborn eaters.
