    Eating Veggies (Video)

    Here are my mature males eating their veggies. Sometimes the females eat them, but it takes a little while after the food has been given. This is right after I put the dishes in.

    Look how happy everyone is! That's what my bird room looked like when I came up with fresh, warm birdy bread: everyone out and peeking happily over their cups ^_^

    Yeah, it is weird that the babies I raise are never interested in anything fresh, but when they mature and see it again, they want it! Has anyone else had this same experience? For instance Shamus will not touch the stuff, and neither did Tore or Osiris before they became mature. But now that Tore and Osiris are mature and have mates, they are all over the fresh stuff, especially the bread (I mix the mash {sweet potatoes, yams, frozen veggies, pasta} with the bread in the same dish and sometimes over things like cereals, fresh fruit, other veggies, etc).

    My babies couldn't be bothered with anything fresh either. If I gave them some Gerber Stage 2 plums, veggies or applesauce for a snack, they only ate it as the black stripes were fading from their beaks. It took Kip six months before he wanted to eat fresh fruits and veggies. However, they were really into Gerber freeze dried fruits and corn bits. They loved the way it melted in their mouth.

    Your birds are all so cute, I just love the singing of one of them in the background as they all are eating. I would be in HEAVEN with all those cute lovies in one room. Boomer still isnt into fresh fruits, only dried but he will eat his vegetables just like your birds.

    Thanks Deanna, they really are a treat in themselves! I love going in there when they are all out and having them fly all over me. When I feed in the morning, they usually sit on my back, shoulders, butt, anywhere they can sit without me bumping them and they watch me dump out dishes and refill them. Then Isis and Osiris like to chew on my pants, right next to my bum I have no idea why they have that obssession!

    If only you lived closer, I would just love seeing all of them out and about, I do love birds way too much and I would love to have more then one on my shoulder... boomer is a one bird man, he hates all other birds but himself!!

    How funny that Isis and Osiris like your bum and chewing your pants... umm maybe they think you have a cute one and they must have Moms bum

    I never thought of that! I will take their interest as a compliment then!
