Hi. Everyone!!! It is winter here as you all know and there is a weed that likes it grows in cold and Indi loves the Chick Weed.. As soon as i bring in near him he is going nuts over it he can't wait till i put it in the bars of his cage but he jumps on my hand to get it this time he got out and was eating it on me... I also have some photo's of Indi loving his carrot to..

Chick Weed. Indi loves the seeds on it.

Nice photos! Indi sure does look like he loves chick weed. It was nice of him to share it with you! I wish I could get that here in Michigan, I bet Penry would like to try an exotic Australian treat ;)
Thank you Sean & Chloe. I think that Chick Weed is Australian ill look it up after.. Indi really loves it at first he didn't.

He certainly does love both his chickweed and carrots. Cute pictures Lyn.

Sean and Chloe chickweed grows all over the world and it does grow in North America as well as England and Europe. It's proper name is Stellaria media and is also a medicinal plant. Here is the Wiki link for it.

Indi is so cute!

And he must really love his Mum a -lot- to share something as yummy as chickweed :)
Thank you. But I didn't try it I don't think it would taste very nice. I don't like sliver bear either and Indi loves that to...

Aww, that is just so cute! It's lovely to see handsome Indigo enjoying his veggies ;)
Great pics, Lyn! :)
Thank you StarlingWings Indi loves all of his veggies...

Indi is such a good and handsome boy eating all those healthy snacks!

All my birdies love chickweed too, Lyn.
In fact, they like it better than most vegetables! :giggle:

Since it is such an abundant weed and grows quite readily behind our back fence, it's quite easy for me to harvest and serve as well. (plus, I know it isn't chemically treated and it's free!!)

Thank you Deb. We must of texted at the same time and i have just seen your message. Yes Indi likes chickweed more than veggies to.... It only grows in the Winter for us as in the Summer time the chickweed dies down... Does the Chick weed grow all year round over there... Wish it would here.. At first Indi didn't like the taste but now when he saw Mum's canary eating it now he likes it....
