So ya, Fred and I are having a sort of handbags at dawn thing over his absolute refusal to eat anything other than seeds and millet sprays.
This is how is typically goes.
Oh, you've left it whole this time instead of chopping it up. You can't fool me, human.
Watch me all you like, it ain't gonna happen
I'd rather hang out with my plastic pal than eat your 'fresh' veg and fruit
Carrots and swede, you say? With cress? And seeds on top? I am a master at picking the seeds off the top. Muahahaha
But I'm handsome tho, right? So give me seed!
This is what I think of your 'strawberry'
Looks interesting but I'm not convinced.
That's it, I'm outta here
I sat right in front of his cage tonight, eating my apple strudel and ice cream. He was so interested in what I was eating I thought surely he would want to try some of mine or at least eat his. He hopped right up to my bowl. He chirped - which is a miracle, so all is not lost - but he wasn't having any of it.
So he's gone to bed with a fresh bowl of seeds.
