Default what fruit and veg do you guys give h

Hi everyone. I did get the list of fruoit and vewg on the site. What do you guys give to your budgies? Mine likes grated raw carror or raw chunks and also cooked cauliflower. She has now started eating apple. Have given honeymelon and normal melon before and some seedless grape although not for about a year. I would like to brauden her intake and have bought frozen corn and also fresh brocolli and banana. Although these are on the list I am not sure how to give. I am always scared to give something I don't know if anyone has given without side effects. What do you guys give that is safe and that your bugies like. I don't want to buy a lot of stuf that she would either not like or won't be safe. Tried pineapple 2x last month but she did not like thaat

I used to chop bits up and put it in there dishes but they paid little attention.
Today I bought home some kale for them and when I let them out, I placed it on top of the cage and they soon came and had a look and tried some. Just keep trying different ways to give them treats as they are fussy!

I usually take one piece of whatever, wash it well and then show it to her.

She always initially believes that it is a "budgie-killing" vegetable or fruit.

Eventually she bites at it, to teach it a lesson and then she pauses a moment, makes a nummy face and then bites it some more and starts eating it.

Except for grapes. They apparently, are still VERY dangerous for budgies.

At least according to Miss Marple.

Hello my Budgies get basil. thyme, parsley, broccoli, lettuce, sprouts, banana, spinach, fresh grass with seed heads, carrot , and yams or sweet potato to name a few.

I usually chop or cut with scissors the herbs, the broccoli I simply place small bits cut of with scissors. the lettuce I place a wet leaf in the cage they love rolling around on this as well for a bath.

My gang likes shredded carrots, apple, romaine and red leaf lettuce, corn, sweet potato, fresh grass seed, celery, beets, shredded coconut and broccoli. They didn't like broccoli until I cooked it and now they love it! They especially like it if I add a little salsa to it! I was wondering if it's okay to give them turnip and collard greens?

Hmm, Mallorn loves shredded carrot, romaine lettuce, kale, basil, parsley, carrot tops, and sweet corn (the kind that's frozen, thawed, obviously) She also likes broccoli now and again, gets a little raw almond during her moult, and pear as a treat
