So, first I'll share a bit of a success story I had with the boys!
(Positivity is always good, right?)
They have never really been huge on the whole veggie thing, but because of their moult, I decided to try again.
I cut up some peppers for them, stuck them in their bowl, sprinkled a touch of seed over them, and gave them the bowls back. At first, they just looked at me with that "Is this some kind of sick joke?!" look, but they eventually went down to nibble at the seed. Then, Ice, (the little stinker!) started picking out the veggies and carefully placing them on top of his bowl!
But! They did try them! And they liked them! And they ate them the next day too!
So if you're having trouble with veggies, do not lose hope! Keep trying and trying and trying!
Well, after that, I made them some boiled egg, and thinking they'd had enough new food for that day, I doubted that they'd eat it.
But again, I sprinkled a bit of seed on it, watched their glares, they nibbled at the seed... and, since egg is harder to avoid, their beaks quickly got messy and they had a taste of the delicious egg which they quickly chowed down on.
(Oh, they also tried lettuce for the first time recently!)
Now for some thoughts:
What are your opinions on dried veggies? There's this company called "THRIVE" that sells freeze dried food, and we have cans and cans of the stuff, including vegetables like kale. The thing about freeze drying is that I could easily just crumble some up and mix it in with their seed and pellets. Also, freeze drying is different from dehydrated vegetables, because the nutrition is actually preserved. So what do you people think? Good idea? Stick to the fresh stuff?
I'd love to hear your opinions!
