Kiwi & The Artichoke

12 Apr

So awhile back I heard about giving your parrot an artichoke stuffed with food as an enrichment toy. An artichoke is actually bigger than my parrot, but yesterday I bought one any way to try.  This morning I put her pellets into the leaves with a few seeds & nuts to inspire her to forage.  I stuck it on her cage that she stays on during the day and took a few pictures.  It took her less than a minute to approach (which included looking at it upside down once) and reach it to pull out a small piece of walnut. She is so brave!  She only picked at it a few times, now she is preening and getting ready for a nap.  Maybe tonight when she is more into shredding she will dig in a bit more.
