Talking What is your birds favorite treat?

Besides a nice strand of millet my budgie loves eating dandelion greens or chewing up and destroying a chunk of fresh sugar cane.

I think SPX's ultimate treat is corn on the cob I can't eat it without him freaking out in his cage and demanding to be let out so he can eat what I am eating. I have learned to steam the cobs for 2 mins so its still crisp and raw but sterile.

I don't eat it with butter or salt and have to eat it cold or cooled because I always end up with SPX standing on my hand or fingers eating one end of the cob while I attempt to eat the other end. I would hate to make my budgie greasy with butter because I've seen him rub himself on the corn.

I don't think mine have any favourites, they just like everything I give them.

Aaah I tried giving my feeds dandeliion but none were interested, smae with Camille, lol! My fids are not really into treats, surprisingly. Happy, our GCC loves blue berries, black berries, and our lemon (Meyer's)'s favorite food is his pellets, hahaha... Our african grey wouldn't even take an almond, she doesn't like food in general but seems to enjoy red peppers. Strange little birdies

You are so lucky your birds like everything!

Budgies are so strange with foods day to day so I struggle at times to get my devil birb to eat veggies.

I miss Mr. Peepers the canary that bird would eat anything I offered him but then canary's are total freaks about veggies and fruits. Mr. Peepers would eat a chunk of corn on the cob I placed in his cage and then fly to SPX's cage and eat the corn on the cob I left out for SPX.

Canary's are like mini fruit and veggie garbage disposals!

Funny your AG doesn't go for almonds, they are usually like CRACK for a grey!

Egg for our African Grey. Probably quinoa for our Green Cheek. Our Meyer's Parrot loves hot peppers.

Does your grey eat the egg with the shell as well?
