You mean to feed it raw green beans? Yes, you can. My parrots love green beans (as a matter of fact, they got them yesterday as the veggie of the day) -their favorite being sugar snaps because they love opening the pods and eating the little peas inside- but they also like regular and French green beans -they grab them with their 'hands' and munch on one end working their way down (but they usually throw it away when they reach halfway down - which is normal behavior for parrots). But I would think that your bird is too young for them...
