I have been trying forever to get my budgies to eat some fresh foods, with little success. However, we bought kale for us for the first time, and have to say I'm not overly fond of it. I, of course, gave the birds a leaf to try. The boys tore it up! They liked it so much they were fighting over it, which really surprised me since they turn their little beaks up at almost everything I try to give them. My one girl, however, hid in the opposite corner of her cage for a couple hours until I just took it back out. Kale is a GIANT SCARY MONSTER! Apparently...
I went to the store the other day and bought more kale, since it's the first green thing I've gotten any of them to eat. I did think about the fact that maybe the one big leaf was too scary, so I ripped up part of a leaf and just put the pieces in her bowl. I thought maybe she would at least look at it then. She did. Then she proceeded to throw it all out of her bowl and ignore it.
That is too funny! I haven't tried hanging veggies in their cages in quite a while, but they never seemed to like it that way. I think mommy spoiled them rotten cutting them up so small, lol. I've ruined them on big scary leaves!!!
Thank you for my wonderful signature Deb!!!
RIP Pepper, Peatri, Holly, Mini, and Quarty
