It's raining and I was stuck inside the house so they've been getting extra mommy time today. Apparently they're unimpressed!
Aw. Well that's just rude after you went to all that trouble.

Made a few days worth of chop, Nautilus will still get his not chop though. I normally make chop fresh daily cause I am really bad at remembering things, and dont want to waste chop. For example the birdie bread experiment I made and put in the fridge, only remembering about it yesterday :o: That's going in the bin...

I added rehydrated veggies to today's servings. Chop includes red and green capsicum, carrot, zucchini, carrots greens, and broccoli.

Broccoli slaw, veggie mix, sprouts, jalapeno, mini peppers, sweet potato, and a bit of bird bread. Ripley also got a bit of anti-inflammatory powder.

Haha! I wouldn't expect it any other way he's such a chow hound! But especially the fact that it's corn first since that's his absolute favorite :heart:

Aww look at him go :heart:

how’s he settling in
He's still being shy but very curious. He chatters quietly a bit, but mostly only makes a noise over a whisper when Ripley is yelling for breakfast :lol: He's eating well though, drinking good, has good poops, and has been taking the tiniest of nibbles on his toys. :) He crawls ALL OVER his cage though and he's so quick!

So, I struggle with the time to prepare fresh chop, so I’m not brilliant at it. What is everyone’s go-to freeze dried chop mix??? I need suggestions!

I tend to alternate between Texas Freeze Dried Naturals (freeze dried) and Christine's Chop Shop (dehydrated).

Then I add in grain based mixes like Higgins Worldly Cuisines.

I actually made up a list of dry food options recently! Alternative Parrot Food Options

I am copying an answer I said on Facebook because it's still so true :lol:

Ripley has paid more attention to the pigeons outside so far :rofl: Bosco has tried talking to him and Ripley's like, "cool, I'm going to keep shredding this phone book". I have it so Ripley can't reach his cage at all though just to be safe :)

He's like a little ball of blue lightning ! It's crazy how you blink and he's already at the other end of the cage lol .

That's the main thing I used for Bosco. He would eat the carrots and green beans but his favs by far are the corn and Peas.
