Default first carrot piece

Maia just got in touch for the first time with a piece of carrot.

https://youtu.be/GOryyxG-qOY

I can not tell if she was eating or just shredding. We're on the right way?
How often should we give the carrot?
After she get used with the carrot can we pass to lettuce?

Thank's a lot!

Hi there, you are definitely on the right track! From the video to me it seems she eats some and then shreds and spits out some pieces.
Even while just shredding, she is tasting the carrot and ingesting its juice, and that's great!
Sure, you can start offering her some leafy greens as well. If she likes shredding the carrot bit, maybe next time you can try introducing some broccoli.

Good luck!

I know this has become the party line on TB, but I agree with Aluz! And you should definitely give your budgie veggies everyday. My flock's fave veggies are carrot, broccoli, and cauliflower.

I agree completely--she's on the right track! Keep it up and she'll be begging for veggies in no time!
