Oh, man, how did I not see this topic?
I would be in heaven if I had all those parrots in the yard!
Yeah...on the sunflower seed
idea, you can't go wrong. It's a favorite treat for a parrot!
Lola's favorite treat is Avi-Cakes (those with parrots know what I'm talking about). They are expensive, so you wouldn't want to get them started on THAT! Lola goes balistic when she doesn't get her Avi-Cake the second she asks for it. (She has a $30. a week habit...and wastes most of the cake. The birds outside get what she wastes, though.)
I have seen a lot of stuff on Animal Planet about all the wild parrots in California, and the wild Quaker parrots in Florida. If I lived where there were a bunch of wild parrots they'd have me committed to an institution. The term "Crazy Bird Lady" they use here to describe me would not even come close to what they'd be calling me if I had a YARD full of PARROTS!
And as for the Cheese-Nips... :rolleyes:
Lola loves them, but she would eat the corners off then throw the rest in the floor. Wild Willy sent her a box of "Sponge Bob" Cheese-Its for Christmas. She had never had them before. She ate every bite of them. No waste!
After that box was gone, I got her the regular kind (square) and she threw a FIT!
She would NOT eat them!
So, back to the store.
(Yes...I made a special trip) :rolleyes:
Got her a box of the Sponge Bob Cheese-Its and she was a happy parrot again.
