Well, the big birds certainly approve of the vanilla cupcakes. I gave them a few pieces as a little treat yesterday. Boy, I have never seen them enjoy food so much; they even “fought” over who would get the crumbs and, surprisingly, Ben was the winner (he stole entire chunks of cupcake right out of Sera’s beak).
Don’t worry, birds can pretty much eat anything humans can (with a few exceptions thrown in). However, eating junk food for them is the same as it is for us (unhealthy). So, they only get little nibbles of things like pizza crust, cookies, and goldfish from time to time. Goldfish were their favorites prior to this cupcake experiment (I think I might have created monsters now though and goldfish will probably be so “last week”).
