What foods do your tiels love more than anything else? Is there one thing they'll go crazy for?

Mine both love digging into some bok choy or broccoli, and they also really like a nice dish of cooked lentils or sprouts. Then there's the obvious treats they go nuts for like millet and sunflower seeds. ;)

I soak the lentils overnight and then cook them the same way you cook rice, add more water than lentils and simmer for ages. :p It's easier if you have a rice cooker because then you don't have to pay so much attention to it. Another thing i feed them is cooked soup mix which you can find in the supermarket. :) It's got lentils, beans and grains.

Carrot tops and boiled egg oh and corn the frozen stuff thawed and warmed through.

Carrot tops are the winner I would say though. Only get them during summer here though.

mmm peppers. I'll give it a go once i gets out to buy birdie veggies this week.

Since they wont eat a full pepper in one go it would be a great idea to chop up a little for them and freeze the rest so it lasts longer. I gave the birdies some leafy celery and when i went to see what happened to it they all chowed down on the leave and threw the rest on the floor. silly little things. Everything ends up on the floor.

Spike likes peas. Iam still trying new things. He seems to taste some things but will not eat them. He is really picky. My budgie Icarus who I thought was picky is trying anything I put in his dish now :p

I never tried that. I ussually try and buy the smaller ones and I cut it in half. (seeds and all). Baby gets half and the budgies get the other half.
