Man did you hit the nail on the head w/that one. When anyone comes
in the store and buys bird-related stuff or a bird, I give out a
sheet that has a list of all the good fruits, veggies, etc. that
you can feed to your birds. Some people look at me like I've
grown a beard or something. "That's not what birds eat." one lady
said. Many people think that giving veggies to a bird kills it.
Some of the people were so stupid that I don't think I changed
their minds at all about bird diet.
