Cooked potatoes appear to be ok but raw and the plant itself is toxic. I would not feed cooked potato to my birds as there is mainly carbohydrate in it so it has no real benefit. But Sweet Potato is a vastly different matter. The Orange Kumera Sweet Potato (which is actually not a potato at all) is very good because it is high in Vitamin A. It can be given raw or cooked. My birds love it.
