    hi andrew
    thank you for sharing. i use to feed them feast insectivore
    also, but they seems to eat all the mazuri first and barely
    touch the feast. so i stop with the feast. you feed your birds
    three different food, do they eat it all at the same time, or
    sort out there favorite first and least last. how do you solve
    this problem. i keep refilling the mazuri pellets, afraid that
    they would not like(eat) the feast and starve to death.
    thanks again for your advice.
