Cindi L asks
“How did you get your parakeets to eat chopped veggies?
Mine will nibble on veggies I put on a tiny skewer but show no interest in chopped veggies in a bowl.
I tried for about a week and gave up. . .
Also, do you cook the frozen mixed veggies you use or chop them frozen, then thaw and serve?
Please enjoy this great budgie feeding hack from the folks at Windy City Parrot.
We wanted to serve our budgies vegetables but we were frustrated.
We had success with a couple of lettuce products like serving up an entire core of iceberg lettuce.
