For parrots, if it’s not fun it’s not worth doing.
Take breakfast for example.
Breakfast tastes very good inside the bowl.
But what about if it is outside the bowl? It might even taste better (and it will be very fun ‘training’ Mommy to pick up all the seed hulls and millet stalks that are left over).
Step One: Check to make sure you have the breakfast bowl all to yourself.
Step Two: Begin with an initial spread to sample how each item tastes when outside the bowl.
Step Three: If the flavor improves when allowed to breathe, continue transferring desired breakfast items from bowl to counter surface.
Step Four: Be sure Mom is paying attention so she can deliver the proper level of customer service during the meal.
