Puddings & Toyboys

A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Open-minded about mint

everystockphoto_mint_242060_lI had some fresh mint.  I wondered if anyone would eat it.

Mint has a rather chequered history here.  Atilla & Raspy thought mint was the devil & they took to the hills as soon as they got a whiff of it.  The toyboys were not impressed with it either, but were not so dramatic about it.

Perhaps they would think differently about it now?

I got a small, inoffensive leaf & decided to offer it to each boy in turn.  As previously posted in 2011 (click here), Cagney was not impressed.  He is still not impressed & though he approached the mint leaf, the smell was enough to tell him a nibble was out of the question.  Bezukhov, as in 2011, could get past the smell & have a nibble but clearly the taste was not to his liking, then & now, & he quickly turned his back on it.

What about Thomas?  What did he think?  Well he had a couple of bites but looked a little unsure.  I suspect that for the time being, he may be keeping an open mind about mint.

    Mr P is such a brave bird. The sausages would find mint absolutely terrifying.
