Fruit and Veggie Skewer

Sponsored Links
so we found a way to make veggies fun... at least this works today, but that is better than nothing

in my last online order I also got a Fruit and Veggie Skewer and I had to try it out today, I had nice fresh apples, chinese cabbage and a yellow pepper (I really ned to go veggie-shopping though) and she got a yellow skewer for a start...







naturally she greedily went for the apple but even the cabbage was good after a while

anyone else use this?

Re: Fruit and Veggie Skewer

Yup, Japie and Appie do not like to hold veggies/ wet fruit etc. in the foot unless is is a really prized one. So the only way to make them eat ALL the veggies (well most of them) is to make them into toys - like you did.

I made a few larger immitations for macaw-Sunny, also nice. But she still freaks when things start moving- so it needs to be in a non-swinging place.

Re: Fruit and Veggie Skewer

yup, apparently making it into a toy did help, she ate quite more than she normally would

she's an adventurous one and always wants to do stuff (though lately she just wants to nap a lot, probably due to the massive molt and implants), sadly I am more lazy haha and I lack ideas how to do something to make it more interesting for her... but this skewer was a hit today, now I just hope it stays like this too

Re: Fruit and Veggie Skewer

I wish my Too liked mine the way yours does...She doesn't think it is very fun....Although I can sometimes use it as a toy holder for wood etc.
