    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
