juicing for birds

hey I was wondering if anyone else juices for there birds, I give my birds juice twice to three times a week, just a little bit but its packed with antioxidents and vitamins. i usually use carrots, oranges, berries, apples, celery, broccoli, celery, and put a few together in a juice then I drink most of it and give small dishes of it to the birds, I also use the pulp in birdie bread which they lose.

Oh and on a side not for people, make pulp burgers are delicious i had one tonight with the pulp of a beet, carrot, yam, orange, and apple then I added tahini, oil, cumin, corriander, basil, garlic powder, and ginger and added acacado(no burger for the birds tonight lol) and i grilled it, it was delicious yum yum.

It is good to give juices to birds. My bird also likes to drink juices. juices are good for birds and there is no any problem to give juices to birds.

So they drink it undiluted, or do you cut it into their water dish?

We own a juicer, so now I'm intrigued

you can give the juice just how it is, no need for water. they eat fruit and veg so i cant see why it would make a difference

I just know Hector doesn't like the tanginess (so far) of strawberry or kiwi fruit, and I know how intensely flavored fresh juice can be.
Really just looking for ideas to ensure Hector's getting his vitamins
