I saw a bird toy with a pine cone on it, so figured they were safe and Screech loves them. Fortunately, the breeder had tons of them in his front yard and told me to help myself. Hanging from his play stand, or just rolling around on the floor....he loves 'em.
I bake all my pine cones to make sure all parasites are gone, it is not worth the risk. I clean them really good before baking, and scrub them with a toothbrush to get rid of anything stuck to them or the little seeds.
