The only safe legumes to sprout because of anti-nutrients contained in many dry legumes are mung, whole lentil, whole dried pea, garbanzo and adzuki. All the other beans contain more anti-nutrients. If someone does want to cook them, they must be soaked overnight (as should the recommended varieties), drained and rinsed, placed in a pot with fresh water, boiled for 10 minutes uncovered, simmered covered for 20 minutes or until done. I prefer to use just the sprouting beans whether for sprouts or cooked legumes.

Isnt there two kinds of Eucalyptus?? The small round leafs type used for floral deco and the long leaf type tree????
Eucalyptus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There are many, many species of Eucalyptus. I'd hate to guess but I would say close to 600 species, not all of which are grown as ornamentals. There are many species that are grown as ornamentals though in the climates where they are suited.

I don't see roses on there. Seems to me they should be safe since they are edible for people and after my birds tore up one of my miniature rose bushes they were fine.
I also don't see orchids. My birds started nibbling on the ends of my dendrobium and so I moved that out of their way. I have quite a few Phalenopsis (the big broad-leaf kind you see in most stores) and found only one bite taken from a leaf, and so I guess they don't like those, thank goodness. They are always on the baker's rack where I keep those and they don't bother them at all, but let them see a rose bush and it is picnic time!
