Morning all Well I have decided today that the end of the world is nigh! Just found out that broccoli (aka Plant of the Devil!) has attained recognition for a compound it contains that apparently aids the slowing of osteoarthritis and there is currently a study that are requesting people to volunteer to receive this natural compound …. this is not going to be a study I would volunteer for!! Broccoli makes me yak!! Nasty evil stuff as far as I am concerned … smells to high heaven...lingers for ever and totally nasty tasting stuff …. ok so my flock has it but they like it and even dare I say it enjoy it, especially the tender stem stuff fed raw. Can't believe the things I put myself through to ensure my feathered friends get what they need. Can only presume that as parrots have a different number of taste buds and things taste different to them than they do to us (ie chillies don't taste hot etc) it's the reason they don't know its an evil weevil pongy plant! More rain today and don't fancy living right up north where Nigel does as they are under amber warning today rather than the yellow warning many others are. Little Henni is still not well so very preoccupied in this house with looking after her which I hasten to add I suspect she is milking it for all its worth. Whatever your up to today stay safe and warm. Hugs to those in need of one.
