Today, I learned Peri loves cilantro! She comes to my hand when I have millet or cilantro in my hand. She nibbles on the leaves, but she loves the stem the most. So proud my baby is getting into veggies

Yesterday I gave her carrots and celery, but she didn't care too much for the carrots even though I cut them into slithers. But eventually she will have to budge like she did with the cilantro so far so good

Question, I have heard some owners put tiny amounts of apple cider vinegar into their budgies' water when they see them sick or strange. Would it be weird for me to put ACV into Peri's water a few times a month, just in case? To build up her immunity? Since now is when Peri is eating REAL food (veggies, fruits, egg food) instead of the seed only diet she used to have (my mistake ), maybe she's not so healthy and may need to build up some defenses. Is AVC okay? Thank you!

ACV is a wonderful natural pro-biotic and many of us use it regularly (two or three times a week) with our birds.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Start with about 1/8 teaspoon to 10 oz of water.
You can then work up to 1/4 teaspoon per 10 oz of water once the budgies get used to the taste.

You can also supplement her diet with dried "Herb Salad" in addition to fresh vegetables.
Consider giving knotgrass as well as it is a very healthy addition to the diet! (You can purchase it on Amazon. com)

Thank you so very much, Deborah! I will surely start giving ACV to Peri and thank you for the link. Also, for the herb salad and knotgrass suggestion! Do they come in capsules or loose in the packaging(in amazon)?

Also, love the cutie in your profile picture!
