When I make a list of Summer's favorite foods... its easy to tell

Cantaloupe, Squash, Pumpkin, Papaya, Pomegranate, oranges....

If its orange- she likes it- with the exception of carrots. I have to sneak those into her formula still :)

She's slowly opening up to red foods, such as plums and she will play with a red and orange pepper.

Green things are on the ABSOLUTELY NO list!! Occasionally I can get her to eat a pea....

Anyone else have birds with favorite food colors!?

When I was feeding colored pellets to my conures, they would eat the purple and red pellets before any of the other colors. I think their least favorite were the yellow ones ... I'd always find several yellow pellets in the dish at the end of the day :D

Like I mentioned in my thread, Ceddy's just finally starting to eat some green and orange foods. I don't see a favourite colour food, just colours she doesn't like (green and most orange, well, except oranges :p, she loves them)

Hmmm Koba seems to like anything green.. Orange.. Red.. Come to think of it, Koba will eat just about anything. But she seems more drawn to green things? Not sure if it is for the taste or color, though.

My Linnie likes green things... he eats kale and escarole like it's going out of style.
Summer gives me the "that's neither juicy nor tasty" glare when I offer her it the green stuff

Lucy prefers orange and red. But she will eat green food if it is there.

Kai likes red, orange and yellow, though blueberries are a nice exception!

It changes daily with cookie.. with her pellets, sometimes I'll come home and she's eaten everything but the yellow ones.. sometimes only the green ones are left.. occasionally she doesn't eat the red and orange ones.. *sighs*

The conures like red: chillies, raspberries, pomegranate, strawberries

The other fids like green: endive, broccoli, peas, bok choy, silverbeet, snow peas, etc.

It seems like orange and reds are an overall favorite.

My conures eat anything, they don't like bananas though, LOL!
Sammy prefers yellow, orange, red and green, she likes blueberries also.
When she was on Zupreem Fruitblend, she picked out and ate the purple pellets.
The cockatiels like anything also, they seem to prefer yellow and green.

My amazon likes anything "carb" colored, LOL! She is very wary of orange or dark colored food. For the longest time she would ignore pumpernickel and now she loves it.
