Puddings & Toyboys

A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Handful of corn

Phineas has a very annoying habit of shredding the baby corn on the skewer.  He probably ingests about 5% of it, but the rest is scattered far & wide.

I hate waste.  Unfortunately, with budgies, food waste is quite common.  In an attempt to salvage some corn, when he is in the middle of shredding, I place my hand directly underneath to try & catch as many pieces as possible & then put them in a seed dish.  He does bite & fling, not just bite & drop, so a lot of corn still goes flying all over the place, but at least this way, some of the baby corn can be saved & eaten in a civilised manner.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who tries (tries) to catch flung food, haha. Phineas looks mightily pleased with himself in your last shot. Makes me miss Mishka, who adored baby corn.

    I know what you mean about hating the waste. I squirm when I dump out our guys’ food dishes 😦
