LIFE WITH BIRDS is a web-comic strip about living with pet birds. The story can be funny, sad or heartwarming. It's a mix between personal experience and wild imagination of my life as an artist and a bird parent. All the characters in my comic are based on the real birds that I have/had. New comic is released once in 2 weeks here. Special bird comics (full page, several pages long) are posted on my Patreon for patrons only.

Pipi and Pellets

How to introduce pellets to parrots. Read bird webcomic drawn in yonkoma manga comic strip style. It can be funny, sad or heart warming. Art by Emmil Thomas.

I don't know why my finches don't like the green pellets. It took them 2 weeks to finally eat the left over green pellets in their cup after their last resort staring at me with puppy eyes for millet didn't work. I used to give Pipi one tiny green pellet every once a while to make her get used to eat it, but every time it touched her tongue, she got "frozen" and would let it roll off her tongue. I don't know if it's just the color, or the taste. I haven't tasted my birds' pellets though, have you? :D

  1. I taste all my birds' foods, maybe that makes me weird ;) You may want to change out the pellets more often. They get stale and not as nutritious.

    1. I only give a bit at at time to keep them fresh :) I check it almost every hour or more often since well, they live in the same room where I work all day (my computer room).

  2. Hmm, must be why I keep finding those ones on the floor.
    Love the comic Em.

    1. yeah, seeds or pellets we need to sweep the floor a few times a day :D

  3. this is why Harrisons have uniform pellets all of the same colour - your birds don't then develop some weird habits about the colour and shape. Also less artificial colouring.

    1. Unfortunately it's not available in my country :(
