Look at that ! Do they eat it?
I have seen them eat the leaves, which I thought was a bit weird, doesn't seem like the most delicious thing :shrug:
Quarter loves the seeds/nuts, I don't think any of mine eat the flowers.

Tomorrow I'll give them a sprig! Least counts as enrichments!
If they've never had leaves or flowers before don't be surprised if they are a bit scared of it at first. Took awhile before my budgies decided it wouldn't eat them :roflmao: now they practically dive on it when I add fresh stuff! :D

Love that photo above this. The photo of milkweed blossom I posted is a wild growing plant. They are all pink, but you can purchase seeds of many other colors. I read that they are difficult to start from seed. Last fall just before the freeze I gathered seed pods and like mother nature I spread them in the wind all around the building. We will see if it works later on.
