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.


VeGducating Thomas: Baby Corn

Continuing in the VeGducating Thomas series, I am happy to report that Thomas is also partial to baby corn.

I hung some up but unfortunately Phineas found it first & was in a shredding mood.  However, Thomas did find a little left & nibbled on that before Phineas had to remove that too.

Shredded vegetables

Atilla is in “shredding vegetables” mood.  You will see by the photos that the celery and the broccoli really did not have a chance….

Oh, & I was covered in the stuff as she was shredding and chucking.  It was down my top, in my sleeves & over my hair & no doubt I will find some rotting behind a cupboard the other side of the room...
