I decided to try out fresh veggies today with my Jenday, as the breeder only fed him cooked ones. I want him to be able to eat both, as more variety the better!
Anyways, today I offered some cucumber slices, carrots (sliced and chopped), and snap peas (I think they're called that). He went crazy! He loves loves carrot. That I now know. I'm super happy about this because hopefully the other fids will follow by example. They'll touch carrot, but won't eat it!
He also liked snapping open the peas and eating the little pods. He didnt touch much of the outer layer, but the other fids will teach him as this is something that they DO eat.
As for the cucumbers, well he tried them, but then shaked his head and wiped his beak and didnt try eating it again. Instead he decided it was much more fun to fling both the cucumbers and carrots at me! The little bug!
Well, at least he's eating some fresh stuff. I can't wait to see what else he will eat. If he happens to be a "super taster" then it will be so good for the whole flock. They'll all eat everything!
Anyways, here's a pic of his little snack. Chomping on a carrot stick.
On a side note, I will be returning home from Michigan on Saturday. I can't wait to begin washing that used cage I bought for him and setting it up.
Ill post pics of that as well.
