Hootie really likes them, the cockatiels sometimes too.

I try to feed my birds cucumbers. I don't think they have ever eaten them, except for Kiki when I cooked it with her scrambled eggs once.

My birds won't touch cucumbers. But they love their peppers.

Cucumbers are very much enjoyed by my flock as well, and they are perfectly safe.
