Don’t forget at this time of year there is lots of free food about dandelions and my favourite are nettles. If you cut some nettle leaves lightly wash then boil in a inch of water for a couple of minis, then you have a very nice tea that is safe to give your parrots leaves and all. This can be made more exciting by adding a slice of orange and other things if you wish. If your feeling brave as I often do after I have served my birds I then add a squirt of Lemmon juice and a dash of honey And have a cuppa myself. Nettles are full of vitamins and calcium and massively good for humans as much as birds. If your brave and like the taste you can just drink the nettle tea as I’m not to sure if adding acids like Lemmon and orange change anything. I often make floating dinners for my birds.A9570B14-5654-40C8-97F6-5C8E51DCADE5.jpeg33F55CB6-49A0-4D87-B0A5-D8062160734A.jpeg8BB27F9B-4600-42B1-B607-90A11AD21386.jpegA8285C93-0ABE-46E7-B337-787452B89535.jpeg

Good ideas there, not sure what my little lot would think. They are very stuck in their ways, likes & dislikes, but I could give it a go.
