    Re: treats for zebra finches

    Boiled egg, broccoli, different fruit and veg chopped up for them, millet. My zebras are always second (after the hanging parrots) onto the fruit and veg bowl to help themselves, they also like the nectar that I have for the yuhina's and hanging parrots. They also eat the dried eggfood (EMP) and universal patee, which is basically dried fruit and insects.

    It's a bit late in the year now since it's coming to winter, but cut fresh branches from safe tree's (apple, pear, elderberry etc) with the leaves still on, also when they come into blossom they'll enjoy this and with elderberry they'll eat the berries too

    Mine absolutely love just about any vegetable you give them, but what they love most are these mash blocks I make them. I grind up whatever veggies I have available, usually throw in some boiled egg, shell and millet, then freeze them in icecube trays. They enjoy picking the mash blocks apart.
