I have heard lima beans are toxic so I don't feed them at all... all other beans should be well cooked from what I have heard.

thanks-I guess I'd better pick out the lima beans out of the all the frozen bags of chop I made over the weekend. Alot of the bird chop recipes I've seen call for the 13 bean soup (just the beans part) as the base. None say to pick out the limas.....

If you cook beans for a long time, say in a slow cooker, you actually increase the toxicity level!

Yikes!!! That's awful and the information out there is very confusing. I've looked at some really good bird sites that give recipes and start with the 16 bean soup starters.

Now I'm afraid to pick out the beans because maybe them just being mixed with rice and veggies might have spread the toxins.
