This is purely of curiosity. Google wasn't much help from my particular searches, and of course Reptar doesn't exactly care about rules and was trying to steal juice from me anyways. But overall, it gave me a tentative idea.
For anti fresh food birds, likes fruits and veggies, would Naked Juice be a viable option? I know its very high in sugar naturally, so it would never be a 'major' part of any diet whatsoever. But would the benefits of the ingredients outweigh the sugar, if they absolutely refuse other options? I don't want them to just rely on pellets / minimal seed. If it matters, I'm thinking along the lines of the 'Green Machine' route, which is more focused towards veggies than fruit. I recognize that a few ingredients are among those to be limited in birds, like spinach I believe, but again this would be a very minor addition to an otherwise rounded overall diet.
I'm just considering adding a very small, shallow (monitored by me) dish around the regular food dishes. Would not be a major impact on the overall food source, but for my very veggie/fruit resistant birds, could the liquid type option be of benefit or more harmful in the sugar load sense? These are birds who have resisted every type of veggie / pellet / sprouts intervention attempted so far. Obviously still working towards the change over, but for the time being, this seems like something to try? Curious to see your opinions.
