I just thought of a great idea to get your tiels to eat any veg well today my mam got the Nutribullet it makes smoothies and I was thinking of making a vegetable smoothie and giving it to the tiels is this a good idea.

I have a nutribullet too! Murray does eat smoothies, but only because she sees me with them and only if I feed them to her on the end of a straw :p Perhaps if you didn't blend the veg up completely but just did it for a few seconds you could make a very fine chop? I mean so it's more like mushy chunks than smoothie. That might work! It will only need a very short moment in the blender though - one second even. Give it a try and let us know how it goes :)

I got my previous tiel, Pip, to eat veggies like that. I used a regular blender, but it basically turned it into a smoothie with a few chunks through it. I just started by mixing some seeds through - he had no choice but to taste the veg to get the seeds, so he soon got used to the taste and then started to enjoy it. :)

I LOVE my Nutribullet. I make healthy juice for myself everyday!

I've given some to my birds, but they don't like it. They like their vegetables solid, not liquified
