Hi friends!
It's been a busy week so I haven't been posting much. When I get a few minutes tho, I've been coming on to get different recipe ideas.
All of your budgie meals look yummy, even the more simple ones.
I've been experimenting this week and found that mine seem to enjoy cauliflower and lettuce.
Today I removed their food dishes and replaced their food with a variety of fresh foods to see what everyone seems to like. Since the fresh diet is new to them they're a bit slow to try it, but eventually curiosity seems to get the best of them. This is the first day I took their regular food away, so I won't put it back in for a few hours still, to see what they like. I'm really excited lol

I noticed yesterday I put some egg food in its own dish and both budgies took to that well! I had been mixing it with their seed so I was not sure if they had actually been eating it. of course they did not touch the dish of veggies.. again.. for the gazilionth day in a row!! Today I made some scrambled eggs and put it in a dish with some egg food sprinkled on top.. we will see how this goes!! I am hoping if they eat the egg.. I can add some white and yellow corn tomorrow to have that blend in and see if they eat the corn! This has been a tough journey.. they wont try anything fresh!!

Stacy, this dish looks soooo inviting!
It looks like you have cooked the carrots, cauli, corn and green beans -- is that right? Rest is raw I think? Are the hoops in the middle Oaties? (Or whatever they are called!? )

Mine did not touch the egg.. I don't think they liked the dish it was in.. I will have to start trying it in their normal dishes I think because they don't like new things!

Today I am trying lettuce, carrot, cauliflower, broccoli, peas, green beans, corn, green pepper, strawberry and a sprinkle of seed. I have removed their seed and used the same exact type dish and location in the cage. lets see what happens!!

I'm sorry sorry it took me so long to respond. I'd lost this thread and only now figured out how to get back to it.

Thank you for the compliment Ann! You named everything perfectly including the O's.
I have since switched them to completely raw veggies and they like them way better than cooked.
I just bought a bag of dried, raisins, cherries and a few other fruits that I'm going to offer them. They were expensive so I hope they like them.... otherwise I'll eat them.
