"We've seen many people lately posting about offering their parrots cinnamon sticks, and for the most part, pictures of those sticks (or quills) have been of the cheaper and toxic variety, cassia cinnamon. These SHOULD NOT be offered to ANY pet due to the very high levels of the toxin coumarin. Cassia quills are only suitable for making your home smell nice, NOT given as enrichment for your parrot. Coumarin is heavily documented as being highly toxic to both our liver and kidneys, but also many species of cold and warm blooded animals, including birds. ***Edited to add*** There have been some queries concerning scientific evidence behind this graphic - as with everything of an educational nature which we post on this page, thorough research is done to ensure the information is both accurate and up to date. For those interested in the factual content behind this, we offer the following references:
There is a significant amount of pertinent scientific evidence - coumarin is WELL documented as toxic to various species, but here are some very specific studies and quotes for very reputable sources concerning avian toxicity:
Harrison GJ: Toxicology.
In Harrison GJ, Harrison LR (eds): Clinical Avian
Medicine and Surgery. Philadelphia,
WB Saunders Co, (1986), pp 491-499.
Lists Courmarin as toxic, with the potential toxic effect of fatal hemorrhage.
Yuassa N, et al: Isolation and some characteristics of an agent inducing anemia in chicks. Avian Dis 23:366-385, (1978)
Coumarin used as an agent causing coagulopathy through depletion of vitamin K in the liver.
Terry W. Campbell in his academic text "Exotic Animal Hematology and Cytology" 4th Edition (2015) notes that 'Coagulopathies are usually acquired and are often associated with toxicities such as aflatoxicosis or coumarin poisoning, or with severe liver diseases such as papovavirus infections."
