Zazzy tried some of the food I cooked for the birds today!
Zazzy is a 7-8 y.o. Quaker parrot who was only fed the WalMart brand parrot mix her whole life. I'm introducing her to pellets and the good brand seeds I order in. She has been slow to try cooked foods I make for all the birds.
I've been eating lunches and dinners while she's sitting on my shoulder when I can. She has been nosey and trying a little bit of what I'm eating while I'm putting it to my mouth.
Today when I got up I made all the birds cous cous made with chicken broth, mixed with brown rice, oatmeal, and carrot/sweet potato baby food. I put it to my mouth and acted like I was eating it and she went crazy over it when she tried it. I went and brought a bowl to the couch with us and she ate while I held the bowl.
I'm super excited she's eating food I'm cooking now. I'm hoping she'll try some scrambled eggs next.
