So I got the pellet today, and I just wanted it say it smells so good??
It smells like bubblegum for some reason. not to be weird or anything, but i kinda wanna taste it lmao (i wont dont worry)
I think you’ll find many of us have tasted our birds pellets. I have! Lol
lol suggest if you ever buy tops that you don’t taste that one- it’s horrific

I mixed their pellet with some of the seeds they were eating before (not a permanent thing) because they were just searching through the pellet and pushing it all out of the bowls, then screaming at me. They can scream pretty loud can't they
Also since I have been doing the thing where you go as near them as possible then as soon as they squeak you back off, they have been letting me get closer each day and the blue one isn't as jumpy anymore so it's progress!
And whenever i let them out I make sure they see me putting some sunflower seeds (their favourite) around the room.
