Greyjoy is on a distinguished road
Default Success!

Greyjoy is currently munching on some kale I clipped to his cage!!! This is the first successful veggie encounter so far! Tried to get pics but he's being elusive. Oh well it's more important that he seems to be enjoying it & actually eating it. I noticed that when the clip was empty he liked pecking at it so I figured I'd try presenting something leafy that way. Hopefully this opens the door to being brave enough to try other veggies. I'm also hopeful that he will help me get Toki to try them too. One of the best parts of owning budgies is I'm eating a lot better. I find many of my grocery decisions factor in if it's something they can eat as well so I also had my first taste of kale today. Now if I could only get my partner to eat his veggies

That's awesome, way to go, Greyjoy!!
Greyjoy will certainly be a positive influence on Toki if she's not currently keen on eating her greens.

Maybe soon the whole family (birdies and humans) will be eating their veggies with gusto!

I'm moving this thread to the Diet and Nutrition section.

Thanks! I was so proud I had to share & maybe give hope to others who are struggling. I know I found a lot of tips & tricks here. I think it can be overwhelming at first when they refuse and you find yourself tossing veggies out & I don't think I would have had success without reading about others' experiences here.

Congratulations on Greyjoy's success in trying his kale today.

I'm so glad that Greyjoy has tried his kale today! That's excellent news and surely he'll soon develop a taste for other leafy greens, too!

Way to go, little Greyjoy!
