Some good suggestions here on getting birds to eat veggies. Our conure can
be picky (although he loves raw carrots). But I found he really likes
cooked brown rice. So I make a daily mixture of warm brown rice (sometimes
I save it from dinner or make a small fresh batch and reheat for a couple
of days). I mix the rice with cooked broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potato,
corn and peas, etc. Kind of like a warm mash. I have noticed when he eats
the mash, he aims for the rice but he also gets the other stuff mixed in.
I see the green and orange hanging out his beak with the rice. Sneaky ...
but at least he is getting some good stuff in him. Also, he loves sweet
potato casserole. I have a recipe with a very tiny bit of brown sugar in
it. We make that fairly often as sweet potatos are good for humans also.
