I am currently teaching my birds to eat fruits and vegetables but am having a bit of trouble. I have 2 budgies and 2 cockatiels. The budgies will eat anything i give them in any form ( raw, cooked, mashed ) but the cockatiels will only eat the mashed food and leave everything thats solid.
I was wondering if this is a big problem. Is it alright to feed them all their vegetables mashed or does this somehow make them not as good. Their usual mix is carrot, broccoli and cauliflower with some pasta, cannelini beans and mashed sweet potato. Usually they will eat the potato, bean, pasta and leave the solid vegies no matter how i prepare them.
Would i be able to mash up the broccoli, cauliflower and carrot and mix it with the rest so that it resembles baby food or is this bad. Help will be greatly appreciated.
