yep, they LOVE it, except tsuka, hed rather have brocholli lol

dally especially loves corn. if its offered with all the veggies she will only eat the corn lol. its a rare treat for them as we often only get the canned kind as its cheap. so we dont often give it to them.

they get peas, carrots, brocholli, and kale most. peas from frozen. rarely they get fruit as they dont really like it, but they got raisons in their treat dish, they love them too. only grapes are liked by the lovebirds but dally likes grapes, blueberries, and mango

one time we buy brocholli and the next we buy kale. we switch between the two. and they get fresh basil and mint as a treat. the lovies go bonkers for basil!! its their favourite thing! we have a potted plant of mint and basil in our window and im also growing some of their seed for fresh spray millet. they like that stuff, the basil more than mint. carrots they get all the time for their vitamin A, brocholli and kale for vit A and calcium among other things, peas i dont know whats in them but they really like peas.

the tiels get cooked rice and pasta. the lovies usually get pasta too but because of munch's recent yeast infection, im avoiding it for awhile with them. the tiels also get toasted whole wheat bread occasionally too as tsuka LOVES it. again, been cautious with the lovies lately because of munch's illness.
sometimes i add dried chili pepper, rosemary, and celery seeds to the mix, like once ever 2 weeks. rosemary is good for their molting and tsuka has molting probkems so its good for them. celery seeds are good for a few things and they like chili peppers so i sprinkle that on from time to time.

very occasionally they get a small bit of fresh ginger

It is great to see the lovies looking so healthy after that horrible scare. You've done a great job with them.


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!
