    Hi,,just what I do..my tiels love when I hang greens from the
    cage on like a clip ,, they love to chew on them I also just
    stick a flower of broccoli there in between the bars with
    flower part in the cage. they dont seem to eat it as much in a
    dish as when I just stick it in the bars... I know mine like .
    peas, corn,and Lima beans and bananna chips also.. but I never
    pull there main diet away.
