Default Clementines

Tonight I put a slice of clementine in each of the girls mirror trays. I had no luck with veggies yet but they always seem to want to lick things . When I saw we had clementines I figured maybe if they licked and tasted sweet rather than nothing they would go nuts! They are not eating them yet but they sure do keep licking at it! maybe a first favorite other than seed?

Ooh, I hope they like it! Not to discourage you, but Mallorn hates oranges

Hopefully these girls are more adventurous

I'm wondering if I should get a needle and make pinholes in the thin skin layer.. maybe if they taste it more they will bite in.. but they are super juicy!

Yes!
They will probably try it if you prick the skin.

Mine love sweet tangerines, which are almost the same as clementines.
I break a section in half to take the seeds out (when there are seeds) and they immediately go for the "meat" of the fruit, not only will they drink the juice but also eat the thin layer of skin. This is a good option for Vitamin C and to build their immune system to possibly prevent them from getting colds.

Yes, they usually do so when trying out a new food they are unsure of and that way they get a little taste before deciding whether it's good or not. They can also do the same the first time they touch a toy before starting to play with it.
They also use their tongues to preen their feathers.

well I did not have much luck last night.. they ended up flying around my room.. until 230 am .. therefore I did not get much sleep..tried putting fresh seed and water.. they just would not go in the cage and I was not going to chase them around but I also could not turn off the light or fall asleep . I just got home from work tonight and they are passed out so I will try again tomorrow after work before our Girl Scout Halloween party.. I need a break!
