Smile What's on the Menu Today (part 2) On-Going

This is a post where we can share descriptions and pictures of our budgies' meals. I find it incredibly helpful to read about and see (I'm a visual learner) what others are doing to prevent me from getting into a rut.

Please feel free to add your own pics, descriptions, ask questions etc. The more input, the better for everyone!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Today, Pig had his seed mix. I mix a variety of types and add in dried veggies & fruits and I crumble a little bit of Avi-Cake and do one or two little millet berries (I don't know what else to call them- I pic a little clump/ball of seeds from a millet spray) and put that in the seed as well. We are out of pellets so none today.

Then for his fresh foods cup he had Celery Leaf, Red Cabbage, Red Bell Pepper, Blueberry, Carrot and one of his little "African Sunset" servings (defrosted- so it no longer looks like a cupcake lol).

Soup's on!



Happy Birdy!


Now let's see what you all are serving up! Inspire me so I don't get into a rut!

Oh that looks yummy and Pig certainly seems keen to get at it

What a great idea for a thread

I've just put my birdies to bed but I'll have to start remembering to take pictures of their meals

This is a wonderful thread and you put it in the exact correct place!

Pig's meal looks wonderful ... he's eating much healthier than I have been with my recent rum cake.

I'll be looking forward to seeing Pig's daily meals and hope others will join in the fun as well.

Looks delicious! I usually just have one item hanging from a random place hoping to attract down interest. I may try this in future. Thanks for the inspiration

Yeah... he's eating much healthier than I am lately as well. Between the holidays and both my kids birthdays, I have been on sugar overload! It's terrible!

I don't remember to take pics every day. But I know when I would peruse the post on the LHC page it would always inspire me to try new things for them. Hoping this works with Pig's meals too. I get stuck in ruts of the same old things LOL

This is Noah's breakfast this morning (Zazu got the same selection in his dish)
Carrot, sugar snap peas, bok choy, Brocollini and rosemary.
They also have a large celery stick each in their cages
