I have figured out a great way to get my budgies to eat their carrots.
They have never been interested in grated or diced carrots. I have been trying for ages to served carrots up in different forms. Then I had an idea that I though might work, whilst watching Rhoobarb shred a natural branch.
Turn the carrots into perches!!
It worked a treat!! Malibu sat on the carrot and chowed down right away. I made the edges a little rough by shredding some of it, and Malibu shredded the rest like he would a toy, and ate loads of it!!
Here are the photos.
He got it all around his face.
For those of you whose birds don't try carrots, try this and let me know if it works.
