Peanuts for sure. She's also a big fan of almonds, cooked rice, and tropical fruit Nutri-berries.

Nutraberries are number one for my guys. They practically trip over their own feet trying to get to them.
Noodle also loves papaya chunks.

My two must be wierdo's or something nither one of them like the nutra-berries. Total wasit of money for me.

Alex will do anything for a pecan. He is totally nuts for them. :)

Martini loves raspberrys. When they get fresh ones he will eat all of his then promply go to Alex's food dish and eat Alex's. :lol:

Both are not to picky and will eat most anything but that is what they each like best.

Scooter loves his Vita-Hookbill mix which is custom mixed for a local bird store. It does contain some seeds, mostly safflower, and he does tend to single those out and leaves behind the peanuts and the large "pellets" that are included. He will also eat some Roudybush pellets and some Nutriberries. But he calls all day long if the mix runs out -- I even tried putting a ton in a foraging box for him, but I guess he's spoiled. Fortunately, he also loves fresh food! He eats a ton of veggies and especially fruits. Favorites are cherries, apples and berries, sugar snap peas, bean sprouts, peppers and peas.

Wow, I think I just discovered Winnie's new favorite food. I made soft tacos for dinner tonight and gave her a little piece of one of the tortillas as a treat. As soon as she ate it she started going through her trick routine unprompted and doing the wing-flapping "begging" thing that baby Quakers do, which I've never seen before, haha. She really went nuts over it. I gave her a couple more pieces but not too much as those things are fairly high in fat and calories, unfortunately. Maybe next time I'll get some of the healthier whole wheat kind and see if she likes those as much. :quaker:
