This morning when I woke up, it was around 7:15 AM. The snow was falling outside, and the budgies were busy chirping away. School was canceled today, so I had the whole day for free time. I used most of this up with reading and researching on my laptop about birds, and I also had to work on a science project.
During all of this reading, I came upon yet another post on a blog about how all-seed diets blow. I really like posts on this topic, mainly because I’m currently trying to get my budgies on a better diet and I can use all the information I can get. It actually ended up giving me the greatest idea. I could create a completely new page here on Kritter Krazy.
I think I’d like to have a list of all the different types of vegetables, fruits, grains, etc. that are safe and healthy for birds. That way I can keep all of the important information I might need to know at a certain time all in one place! I would probably end up including the nutritional value of each one, some things that they might do for birds (i.e. good for digestion, liver health, etc.) and different ways I could prepare, serve or use each type.
Now I just need to start finding all of the info I need, and then I’ll need to figure out a good way to organize it. Maybe I’ll put each type of food into different categories. I’ll most definitely be putting a “Vegetable” category in, along with maybe some “Fruits”, “Grains”, “Beans” and things like that. I’ll make it a goal to get it started by the end of the month. 🙂
