Greens are really healthy for parrots, but to get my parrots to eat them (as opposed to throwing them around), I usually have to food process them up with other vegetables. Not so for Basil. I walked past his cage this morning with the container of lizard food. For some unknown reason, I offered the dish to him to see if he'd be interested in a green.
He gave the container a weird look and foraged through a few leaves before deciding which one he wanted. And then he ate the entire thing.
