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.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. 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...Indi is so cute!
And he must really love his Mum a -lot- to share something as yummy as chickweed
Thank you StarlingWings Indi loves all of his veggies...Aww, that is just so cute! It's lovely to see handsome Indigo enjoying his veggies
Great pics, Lyn!
Thanks Kate. This is Indis treat for the week... Also thanks for finding the link now I don't have to find it...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.
Thanks Despina..Indi sure likes it...He looks so delighted!! and he enjoys his meals so much!
Great photos as always Lyn!
I wish we had some chickweed here too!
Thank you Aluz...Yes he really loves them..Indi is such a good boy, it's great to see him enjoying his veggies so much!
Thank you... Indi likes all veggies he eats some that I don't like... He thinks they are yum and I think they are not so good.. He likes silver beat I don't....What a healthy birdy! My sun conure loved carrots.
Thank you Gabby.Adorable, as always! Indigo is very lucky to have you as his mum
Thank you Julie.Very cute photos! Thanks for sharing,Lyn!
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....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!
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!!)
