When it comes to breakfast and a certain formerly finicky feathery diner, it would appear we have finally turned a courageous corner.

Oh yes.

Because this morning, someone with feathers tried ORANGE.

Or more accurately, he investigated the many merits of this Vitamin C-rich citrus fruit with the thoroughness of a culinary scientist.

Which, of course, made his Mommy very very VERY proud. 🙂

Well, well, well. What have we here....

This isn't half bad, Mom.

Not bad at all!

Boy, Mom sure does look proud. Maybe I should pose just a bit longer since she has that green flashing thing out again.

  1. How on earth have you managed to get Pearl to eat all these different wonderful foods? Did no one tell him that cockatiels are notoriously stubborn about new foods?

  2. Haha! If I disguise it as a toy instead of a “healthy parrot eating snack” he is more apt to go for it. He also likes to watch me eat it first – for about 6 months (or 6 years) – before finally digging in. 😉

    • Hi Leah – in all the research I’ve done, I haven’t read anything about the white part being poisonous. The seeds, however, should be removed before an orange is given to birds.
