What did your birds eat today?

I don't know if this topic was already made but I thought it would be nice to know what everyone's birds ate so we can get ideas on what to feed ours

Ice had her normal seed/zoo preem/roudybush mix in the morning.
Then before I left for school she had a mix of carrot,celery,broccoli and red pepper. She also has the choice of finding nutriberries,hemp seed and almonds that are hidden around her cage!

Your turn!

My birds are on the bird tricks diet and today we're having the main diet with stuffed zucchinis and parrot sandwiches haha. I actually made one of these threads before. Oh we're having some Harrison's in a small dish and as a treat a couple of hemp seeds mixed with some Hagen seed mix with dry fruit and veg

Cockatiel seed mix
Hulled oats
Millet sprays
Sow thistle
Mung bean sprouts
Peas
Sweetcorn
There was a tray of Wheat and Barley that seems to have been eaten as well.
And not sure if they eat the Pumpkin Flax seeds.

It can be hard to know what they have on any one day as there are food bowls and trays in many places for them.
Like 3x places I put Millet, 4x food bowls, 4x trays and a few hooks for when I put things like whole grain bread or Sweetcorn cobs out for them.


A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.

Kiwi had a bit of the insde of an eggroll with some budgie pellets (my budgies wont eat their pellets so Kiwi gets them). Also he had a little but of grape along with a flake of my corn flake cerial. he begs, its so cute. And to top it all off, he got some Kaytee forti-det with the sunflower seeds taken away.
He gets one sunflower seed in the morning and one at night. Also when he has gone an hour without misbehaving.

I probably wouldnt have commented on this if I wasn't so excited but this morning I gave Loki his usually Lorikeet wet mix (he hasn't started mixing it on his own yet) which is what I od every morning. but today I offered him an orange. I havnn't been offering him fruit lately because Ive wasted a lot of it because he just isn't interested in eating it. but today, I cut an orange slice off and when I came back after a nap he had shredded and hopefully, eaten at least half of the slice! I hope this means he is ready to try new foods, and hopefully he might not be far off figuring out ho to mix his own dry food!

-jumps with excitement-

Try grapes! It's the only solid my lory will eat well so far an if you're worried that he's not getting enough variety, get some organic baby food in the squirty bottle things that is literally just blended up fruit and veg (dont get like a roast dinner one ). It's how I manage Darwin and his intake at the moment but I got him eating some blueberries, strawberries and blackberries the other day

Ooh i havnt tried him on grapes yet. i should do that. ive offered him strawberries because i pick them in the mornings and he loves to lick the dimples where the seeds are and chew the leaves. ive offered him apples and kiwi fruit but he isnt particularly interested. doesnt reslly like banana either. so ill give grapes a go next time i get to the store
