    hi- don't know about birds but in dogs/cats studies indicate
    that onions destroy the hemoglobin in the blood thus reducing
    the ability of the blood to bond w/ oxygen resulting in
    reduced oxygen levels in the blood/and reduces tissue
    perfussion. Not to mention the issues of anemia over long
    term exposure(hemo carries the iron too). Don't know if it
    does this to birds but just in case based on that I'd order
    onion free:)
