Default The Food Fight Continues

For anyone who might be interested, here is the link to the post I did about making mash
https://talkbudgies.com/showthread.ph...26#post1879226

And here are the photos of the ensuing event

First I put some in Fred's bowl


I placed that in his cage. This was his reaction.

I see that. I see that stuff in my bowl. It's not what it's supposed to be!


Could've been a basketball player, I'm that good at the fake out. Thought I was going to try it, didn't you?


(note Fred's body language. He was chirping a bit, and unnerved by the stuff in the bowl. Not outright fear, but nearly).

After some consideration I decided to take Fred into the kitchen and have a look at some of the mash, spread out safely on a plate.

He felt better watching it from the bananas


And from the back of a chair


Eventually I persuaded him to stand on the stuff, and now I have mashy, budgie foot-shaped prints all over my kitchen


Fred then decided perhaps a tour of the previously frightening kitchen was in order. So he visited the tomatoes


Inspected the counters






He's on the chopping board. I love that the irony escapes him


I let him check everything out and do his own thing, so the mash didn't become a full on stress point. He seemed to enjoy himself. And he ate ... nothing!

It was all very exciting. Time for a doze by the window.


Fred and I continue to 'discuss' Fred's dietary requirements. Hopefully next time it will be a thread showing him with mash all over his beak!

Oh Fred, why are you just too cute for words.

Love the pictures! I think you will find that he may become more adventurous towards new foods when you get him a friend. They tend to follow each other and one is always more brave and tries first. My flock of four that I used to keep loved cooked egg and rice with parsley and spinach. But Frankie was always the first one to try and then the others followed.

Don't encourage me Dee! lol But yes I know they copy each other. I was just hoping that Fred, given time, would be the leader and not the follower.

I think we'll get there soon enough. He did nibble some of the mash a few minutes ago - he flung it out of his beak, but he did peck at it so I consider that Fred 2 - Me 1. He's basking in the sun on the window ledge at the moment ... maybe that will make him hungry lol

Fred is quite the little inspector, I see he checked out everything on the kitchen, even the knives! I love the photo of him standing tall and proud on the bananas. I think you are very close on making him a true veggie lover!

Thank you Aluz ... He's never been too comfy in the kitchen, so I took advantage of his new found bravery and let him snoop around. He's such a cautious bird, I figured the mash could wait in the interest of confidence lol

It takes time, trust me!

I finally got my flock onto healthy eating!

I started with corn ( removed from the cob ) and I gradually added bits and bobs ... I'll attach some pictures!

This I know James! lol I wouldn't call Fred nervy, but he is suspicious. It takes him a while. I have offered him EVERYTHING, repeatedly, and he's still fighting the power. But that doesn't mean I'll give up. I will just keep putting it out for him and waiting. I'm good at the long game He'll get there eventually
