Default I fooled them, I fooled them!

I am determined to get more pellets into my birds some way or another. Today I picked out the yellow colored pellets from some Zupreem pellets and moistened them until they were soft and then I mashed them in some egg food I made and they ate it without realizing it. I didn't even see anyone spit it out.

That was very creative and so cool they ate them without knowing it.

I should have tried that a long time ago. Zupreem should sell pellets by the color, I have the super tiny ones, kind of tedious to pick out just one color. Those silly canaries I have leave all the orange and red ones and just eat the yellow and green ones. I also have some Roudybush pellets, I'll try mixing those in next time since they won't discolor the egg.

Congrat's Cody...you are very smart to have outsmarted your budgies, and they will more than likely become serious pellet eating machines now..

That's awesome, if my huys think they are getting junk food they eat it lol. That's why I mix all the goodies in their birdie bread they think they are getting something they aren't supposed to lol. Funny how the colors affect them too my tiel Marty will not touch anything green at all even if it is a potato chip which is his fav thing to try and steal green is a no go lol.

It's funny how some have color preferences, my Linnies also seem to have an aversion to anything red.

lol it is strange I wonder if in the wild there is just a signal to a certain color and it's just instinct? Like red equals danger or green equals yuck lol ya know

Oh, Cody.,, I can picture you taking out all the yellow ones.... what a job. I agree they should sell by color. Mine won't eat the green ones, it seems. Course, on some days, they do. Go figure.
Good job on getting the pellets to them. A dedicated bird person, you are!
