Following Mr Avian Vet’s advice, I have started giving the Puddings & Toyboys seaweed.
Egg with seaweed - it looks like black pepper!
It comes in a powdered form. The smell when the bag is opened is so strong it could almost knock you off your feet! I thought, there is no way the girls & boys will go for this!
The first time I offered it was with egg. They had two dishes of egg, one with seaweed sprinkled on & the other without. Which one would they go for? My concern was for nothing as the toyboys did not seem to notice the seaweed & ate the egg from both dishes.
Now, I sprinkle the seaweed on top of their seed. It seems to disappear but I am not sure whether they are eating it (by accident or otherwise) or whether it has blown away during a wing flap or something.
Either way, I have a big bag to get through so I’ll carry on giving it to them!
Here is a video of them eating their egg & seaweed & generally having a mooch about on top of the Ferplast:
