It is believed to cause stomach upset in parrots, but it is not a proved fact. I would put it feed in moderation section.

Radishes are fine. they are not very nutrious, just pure water, but you can still give them some for a change Smile

Eggs should be in the foods to limit list. It is not recommended to feed parrots eggs more than once a week Smile

just start a new thread carol, and then you'll get extra birdy points too! Very Happy

i thought eggs were ok to give more often than once/week, cjs eats them 4 days a week, as recommended by a very smart bird lady elsewhere Shocked

The thing with eggs, is they make birds hormonal and ready to breed. That is why breeders always give egg food to their birds. If you have a single bird you don't need him/her to exhibit hormonal behavior (which usually shows itself as aggression and desire to go in a hole and make a nest), and so it is not advisable to feed eggs more than once a week.
If your grey eats pulses he should get enough protein from them. If he eats pellets too, then there is no problem at all, and egg is not needed.
There are some other issues with feeding eggs too, like if a chicken is given some medication or has any illness it can be all passed to the egg, in trace amounts, but still unnecessary for your bird to get often!

If you do it gradually, first reducing it to three days, then two, then one, he might get used to, it is for his own benefit Laughing

Never raw! You need to boil them for at least 20 mins, can do scrambled eggs, but then you need to make sure they are thoroughly cooked. eggs should be given only once a week or once in two weeks for birds over 1 year old and non-breeding
