For the most part, anything you'll bring in is likely to be safe. But, you should do a visual inspection first, and make sure there's not anything overly nasty on it. You can also quarantine it, which is the best.

However... parrot's feather usually doesn't do well in aquariums. It needs a lot of light, and -- of course -- tends to like to grow out of the top.
