Woo! I've never thought about giving my bird sprouts before. I'm gonna try and get some and see if he'll take it (he's such a picky eater, that silly bugger!).

Thanks for the suggestion! :D

There are many veggies and fruits that are safe for birds, you can check what they are by browsing the internet. I choose papaya and sprouts as my birds daily fresh food because they have the most complete nutrients and... cheap. ^^

Yeah, I know. But just because it's listed as food that is safe for them to eat doesn't mean that they'll actually eat it too. :P

My first lovebird refused to eat ANY kind of fruit or vegetable. We tried everything, but he just wouldn't have it.

The one I have right now, on the other hand, is simply CRAZY about apples. He just can't have enough of 'em. :D
But any other fruit or vegetable? Nope. He'll give it a weird look, walk up to it, sort of "lick it" (he kinda prods it with his tongue, lol) and then doesn't give it the time of day again.

Like I said... picky. :)

My birds are picky too but I have never given up. Some took a week to just taste a new food, some took months. But, just think of them as our own human kids, if they only want to eat instant noodles 3 times a day, will you just let them be...? =P

Hmm... that's a very valid point. :P
I guess my mom kinda let me get away with stuff like that as a kid. Well, not all the time, but still, when I refused something, she wasn't too persistent. Hehe...
(I'm already trying the sprouts experiment, btw. I just have to wait a few more days until it happens so I can try it on him. I'll try to keep your advice in mind! :D)

Oh, your mom never insisted you to eat your carrot? :p
I'm lucky mung bean sprouts always available in the market because it's human vegetable too. :)
Btw, you can also make sprouts from snow peas. ;3

Yeah, she did pester me with some veggies (dad was in charge of making me hate fruit, lol), but she never pushed me very hard if I really didn't want to eat it.

I just used some beans and wheat for this experiment, since it was what we had around the house already. Lol, the last time I tried sprouting seeds was for a biology experiment in school, when I was about 8 years old or something. I know I got some awesome sprouts that I showed to the class back then. I hope it'll work just as well after all these years now :D
