A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Upside-down salt

A sure way to get Dalai to sample something new is to let him see Bezukhov or Phineas eating it right in front of him, or in reality, right above him.  This technique worked with the wild grass which I laid across the top of his cage.

A salt lick had been languishing at the bottom of his cage since he arrived.  Dalai showed no interest.  However, when I placed it on top of his cage, where Bezukhov & Phineas could lick it, his curiosity was ignited.  It did not take long for him to crawl across, upside-down, to investigate.  Once he licked it, he was hooked.  We have another fan of the salt lick.
