Chop preparation and feeding

This is a video on how we feed our flock! I hope it helps somebody. Just a disclaimer that just because this is how we feed our flock doesn't mean that it is what you SHOULD feed them. Ingredients and routine preferences vary widely between parront to parront

I love that you are such a true bird person and you don't care that fresh chopped food gets on your hardwood floors! I know too many people who fret over this.

I wanted to ask you about your chop you prepare for all 3? birds. Do they all pretty much eat the same thing or do you know which bird likes what veggie or grain more and you adjust the food choices for that particulat bird?

It would be amazing if you can make a batch of chop and they all like it and one bird doesn't toss a bunch of things out and make you fret and worry that they aren't eating enough what is good for them.

I loved that my budgies in the past all ate the same thing when I made them chop because if one bird ate it then they all assumed it was good so they all dug in and none were picky and refused a certain veg.

I said it before I want to be reincarnated as a bird and come live at your home!

Awww thank you Mr. Peepers, that is so sweet!! We really appreciate it

What we have eventually settled to doing is we give each bird twice of what they need to eat. Our chop which we make for all our 3 birds has some ingredients that our GCC likes (bell peppers and carrots), Meyer's parrot likes (grains and sweet potatoes), and Bella likes (Kale, berries and sweet potatoes), and we know they eat some of what they don't like as well but a lot of it ends up on the floor like you mentioned haha....

You are so lucky with your budgies, unfortunately our flock does not have that flock mentality yet. Our GCC and Meyer's are starting to get along really well though, so we will see
