Awesome videos Great to see that they're eating a wide variety. I've never been one for the vitamin enriched seeds though. As you probably already know, only the husk has the stuff on it and as it's hulled anyway the bird doesn't get the nutrients it states that they would. Very pointless in the market in my opinion!

Yeah I agree. At the time I bought that, it was the only one I could find with the seed variety I was looking for. Since then I have found more options so when I finish these (which I almost have) I'll be switching completely. Right now I have mixed in the new one a little bit to transition them.

This is birdie's first class hotel!
You take so much care to prepare various and healthy meals for your fids, awesome.
I love to read about different feeding habits in different parts of the world.
The Germans feed fresh fruits and veggies, not frozen, not cooked.
I spend a lot of time collecting fresh greens in nature, currently ist's dandelion and risp grass. This is one of their favorite foods.
They craw at each other who is the first to get them.
