I am thinking...rationally!
Forget physics and let's go with basic biology. I stand firm on
the statement that I made that a bird's tongue will tell it
everything it needs to know before it is caused damage.
If you boil, microwave or prepare food in such a manner that that
high of a temperature is reached, you've already destroyed the
nutrients available to the bird.
And I have to say that if this has happened to you, shame on you
for being so ill informed that you would subject your birds to this
