    My linnie doesn't really like to eat fruit or veggies. Was wondering if it is okay to give him a baby food jar of fruit.

    It would be fine, just make sure that it is natural (like all baby food should be) and doesn't have any milk or milk powder as birds can't digest it very well.

    Gigi warms up to new things pretty slowly. I would keep offering a variety of food. I think high quality baby food would be a fine choice.

    Make sure the only ingredient is the fruit and no additives. Or.... you could make your own with single fruits or a blend of different fruit. Wash, peel, and pulverize in a blender. Freeze small portions in an ice cube tray, once frozen pop them out and put in an airtight ziplock bag. Thaw individual servings when you want. :)

    Whenever I see your signature line I think you must have such a pretty flock in real life. Beautiful colors.

    Thanks! The crimsons are very pretty. As an artist I'm always drawn to color. Nature can be so remarkable! And... as a group they are remarkably very noisy!
    Astro is one of my babies from 2008. She is the whole pallet of colors! The Bling sisters were hatched the year before.

    One thing for sure, if the bird doesn't like it, it's something you can eat too. :coffeescreen:
