Dear Parrots magazine,

Presentation the key

When my pair of Eclectus was housed indoors, all their fruits and vegetables were fed by wedging them between the cage bars. But, when I set them up in a breeding flight outside I couldn’t do this, and they wouldn’t eat the same fresh foods from a dish.

Then I came across an old chip frying basket in the kitchen. I filled it with their usual selection of fresh foods, bent the handle, and hooked it over a branch in the aviary. To my delight, the Eclectus took to this new feeding receptacle straight away, and are now back eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables once again.

Tony Baldwin, Lancs
