Thanks for the link.I checked it out but as it's Australia and I am in the UK, it'd be very expensive for me to get. :-(
They've been having their usual seed, and along with this I've been putting the 'egg mix' I made in their cage and not giving them the usual treats, to try and get their attention on the mix! Simmi ate a wee bit earlier on, and Jenni tried a tiny bit, but on the whole, I think they're fairly underwhelmed by it!
I put spinach, boiled egg, crushed pellets, dried parsley, sweetcorn and drops of the multi vitamin stuff the vet gave me for their water. I ground it all down. I'll persist for a few days more and see, as with them not liking greens other than spinach (which apparently they're not meant to have too much of?) it'd be good for them to have it. I was thinking though if there was a flavour I could add it it that I knew they liked, then they might eat it more readily! ..?!.. They like tangerine but I'm not sure such juice would work with the mixture?
Maybe you wou!d have an idea?
I've also started putting pellets in with their seed....and will see... But to try and give them some nutrients, I'm still considering that dried green stuff I found on a website and which I put at the start of this thread.... Ooh, its so hard trying to find the balance! They love the seed, and I've checked, and it hasn't got any artificial ccolourings or preservatives in it, plus it says it has added vitamins etc and is sugar free. It also has good reviews. Years ago with my other budgie, I took her off seed and put her onto Harrison's and her mood changed completely - for the worse, and I do believe she never forgave me!! She changed from being a sweet, affectionate lovely budgie friend to a narky', bitey one! Hence all my doubts and uncertainties about all this!
Sorry this is such a long post...and I thank you for your patience in reading it all! ,
