I was just checking nestboxes, and I got a shock when I saw one of the babies with a red beak :rofl: I was investigating it for signs of injury and then noticed all the chicks in that nest had red beaks......it was then that I recalled giving the parents beetroot last night too :P

I cut the full beetroots in half and slide 2 or 3 onto a metal skewer which hooks on the side of the cage's wire and then other end goes over a natural branch perch. I also cut some up into pieces for the birds who prefer to eat off the goround. The bits on the skewers always get hammered and go first.

Hi Shannon... :D

 

Yep that's what I do.....not the canned stuff, the fresh stuff from the fruit and veg shop, just wash the skin and chop in quarters.......

I had been using the tim stuff in their soft feed i never even thought about using the fresh stuff probably because we always buy the tim stuff for ourselves. I guess i'm going shopping tomorrow. Beetroot is one of my birds favourites. :)
