I was at the fruit and veg markets on the weekend, buying fresh food for the week, and at the register the lady looked at the giant bunch of endive and said "so what does endive taste like anyway?"

...i was forced to say "i'm not actually sure, that's for the birds!" :lol:

She laughed and told me that she hears that sort of thing from a lot of people, not just birds but rabbits and guinea pigs as well. :p Despite endive being one of my birds favourite foods i am yet to try it, i think it looks like garden weeds.

That's pretty funny.:rofl: I feed my birds things I've never tasted too.
I was at the store once buying alot of fresh stuff for my birds and this older lady got in line behind me and made some comment about someone eats healthy and I said oh it's for my birds. She looked at me like I'd grown a second head.:lol:

They must think we have lost our minds completely. Buying expensive fruits and veggies we may never taste. :dancing:

OMG ditto about the grocery store. I swear I'm at the organic one all the time, and they don't put those sticker on the fruit so they have to look everything up. They are always asking me what something is and I'm like "uhhh....idk...some sort of pepper/squash/etc....it's for my parrots! They always hate to see me coming too because I'm the one with the basket of all fresh items that all have to be weighed!

nonono, endive is yummy -
but you must make a hot bacon dressing for on it.
then put it all over boiled potatoes.
I buy endive whenever it is not all wilty at the store - what are they thinking trying to sell it like that but it must wilt easily in stores. I never have a problem as the birds and I all like it.
Recipe upon request!

I have to spell "tomatillo" every time I buy one for my parrots. If the clerk has not had Spanish, I had better pronounce it toma-tillo instead of the Spanish way. I usually just tell them it is for making fresh salsa. :hehe:

:lol: I can't eat too spicy foods so when I buy small hot chillies for Ceddy it's mostly just one or maybe two - they always look at me funny because that hardly registers on their scales and when I say its for my bird, I swear they think I've gone completely potty

You Know You Are Bird Crazy when....
- your home contains 8 cages, 10 play stands, 6 swings, and a bed.
- you are zoned as a rainforest wildlife sanctuary by your city.
- all your neighbors move away, and you live in an apartment.
- you consider collard greens, dandelion greens, parsnips, mustard green, and escarole to be common vegetables.
- you go through the store checkout with 18 different fruits and veggies (none of which you plan to eat).
- the person behind you at the checkout asks how you prepare the collard greens you're holding and you say that you haven't the slightest idea.
- you have to explain to the lawn care company that you like dandelions in your yard.
- you see absolutely nothing wrong with having every piece of furniture in your living room topped with cages
while your lamp is on the floor, and you use a lap desk because the desk itself holds your parrot toy box.
- redecorating the house means finding a way to squeeze in another bird cage.
- your garage contains extra cages, play stands, toys, but no car.
- you've ever answered the phone with a parrot on your head.
- you tell people on the phone, "I can't talk now; I've got a parrot on my head."
- people overhearing your parrot discussions think you're talking about your date.
- you drive around on recycling day looking for the biggest piles of newspaper to steal and feel guilty when people look out their windows and pity you.
- you want world peace, to save the environment, a cure for AIDS and a better way to clean bird poo.
- you have vases full of feathers instead of flowers.
- you have 3 TV’s and none of them are for you to use.
- your c.d. collection contains opera, classical, and speech lessons, none of which you listen to.
- you haven't owned an alarm clock in 10 years, but never get up late.
- when you're at Home Depot you're busy dreaming about building new play areas.
- you have no carpet in your house, anywhere.
- you shower in the guest bathroom, because the master bath is too full of perches.
- your friends come over for dinner and offer to make a salad, to which you reply "none of those vegetables are for humans!"
- you haven't taken a vacation in 10 years, and like it that way.
- every room in your home is equipped with U.V. lighting.
- your walls are lined with Plexiglas, your ceilings are lined with Plexiglas, and your floors are covered in plastic runners, and they are all still stained.
- you have replaced your vacuum at least twice a year.


:D
