I'm still feeding her mash on a plate for breakfast, and I've noticed her actually eating some brown rice and beans out of it. Also, she is eating some
pellets now. I've been mostly withholding seed, aside from the sprinkling she gets daily on top of her mash breakfast, and I guess she decided eating pellets was better than starving. I mixed some random assorted other brands into her Harrison's, including Zupreem natural, fruit blend, Roudybush, and Higgins intune. This weekend I'm planning to make some birdie bread and healthy bird crackers.
I'm also going to sprout some seed soon. Can oat groats be sprouted? Those are her favorite seeds.
Give her steamed corn on the cob, steamed winter squashes (mine adore the spaghetti one), raw peppers (green, red, yellow, orange), oranges, apples, grapes, grape or cherry tomatoes, baked in the shell sweet potatoes and regular potatoes, (mine love them with a drizzle of virgin olive oil on them), steamed cauliflower, artichoke hearts (I get the plain, frozen ones), palm hearts, raw or cooked green and wax beans, sugar snaps, papaya, mango, cantaloupe, pomegranate, blackberries (a big favorite of all of mine), pears, large and pitted black olives (but rinse them well first to get rid of some of the salt), anise root, celery, bok choy (they love the crunchy stems), fresh coconut, raspberries (my birds don't like them too much), naturally dried figs/dates/raisins/currants/cranberries, pineapple, ripe plantains, steamed yucca, sugar cane, raw or cooked beets (I grate carrots and raw beets together), and, of course, apples anything else that looks good in the supermarket.
