I don't think they would like millet They don't NEED cuttlebone, you can provide healthier alternatives such as spinach, egg food, beans, ect

I don't give my bigger birds any often. You can try but I don't think she would like it. As for the cuttlebone don't bother. I use mineral blocks (large) and clay licks

Mine loves it. I don't give the whole spray, just a couple of inches, but she enjoys it very much. I even used it as a bribe when I had to give her twice-daily injections -- shots first, then millet after.

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
And never regret anything that made you smile
