any fruit and veg that has not been in a kitchen whether that be domestic or commercial can be fed to your bird - which is why mine get apples off my trees, sweetcorn on the cob, strawberries etc. Never give them raw potatoes.
Staffies are softer than you think.

But surely you remove the leaves you're not going to use from the cabbage before you take it into the kitchen? -  you pick them off on your way back from the allotment.. ..

If it doesn't go into the kitchen it isn't kitchen waste.

My understanding of the law regarding kitchen scraps/ waste is that leftovers from plates that may have been in contact with meat products is a no no (as during the war ALL leftovers were given to backyard animals cooked, half eaten etc) whereas the outer leaves of cabbages etc is ok as not been contaminated. But as with all laws open to interpretation.

See this thread for the law.
