I need to get better about photos again! The boys had some chop, sprouts, and Ripley got some Green Chunks from Phoenix Foraging Rolls. Not sure if it is eating them but he is crunching them!

Also tried to give them carrot top greens in their cage to see if they would chew them...they did not :rofl:

Chop, "Green Chunks", sprouts, a bit of hemp seed, and Ripley got soaked Psittacus with his old man blend sprinkled on (antiinflammatory spices, ProZyme, freeze dried veggies)

One attempted to get into my coffee, and the other is too busy screaming at my foot because I've got slippers on and he wants my toes to eat anything.

The budgies are just... Budgie-ing.

I bet bosco a refreshing change I know Remi is he will eat anything

have a question actually how much veggies are too much he seems to really prefer veggies over his pellets and seeds screams in a morning for his veggies now so at 9 he as veggies about 11 I get them all out change for his pellets but give him freash veggies as treats while out but I think he would happily have veggies in his bowl most of day ?

I think it depends on the bird/situation. Bosco probably eats about 50/50 pellets and veggies, and Ripley is probably more like 75/25. I don't really restrict either of them (that's just what they naturally eat), but my goal is to have them eating at least 50% of their diet as pellets as a general rule. For some birds, they may need more pellets or vegetables. Ripley I do prefer to have a more pellet heavy diet because he's already underweight.

Ripley is too ;)
I've managed to get Isadora to eat half an apple slice, Tteok only wanted the core because I wouldn't let him have it (I think he's catching onto my game of tricking him), and the budgies still think I'm the devil so won't take food. Well, Tito might if I hold still long enough, but Davey is still actively anti human.

Honestly pico looks at me with absolute disgust like I’ve just poo in my hands and offered it to him
