Description

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.

Don't forget to check my unique bird themed gift stores on the banner below. Every sale helps me & my birds! Thanks! \(^0^)/

Sprout killers

On the previous comic strip, we have talked how important it is to check bird poops daily, I can even tell whose poop it is because of this. Now, to make sure birds will poop something normal, they must eat normal healthy food too, not just seeds and pellets but also fresh veggies and fruits.

Problem is birds are picky eaters. And the problem will become harder if you feed birds in an aviary or a colony cage, you just can't tell who has eaten what. That's why it's important to have a one on one play time with each bird so that you can recognize which vegetable one likes best. You can even encourage them eating new veggie by using it as toys when you play together. 

After a while, you'll get this enhanced vision that will let you know who done it by just seeing the remains of the victims..., err, the veggies. Some birds have their own distinctive way of eating their food, sprouts for example, Peanut likes to hold down a sprout with his foot and rip the middle part of it, like an eagle! or just bite it in the middle and shake his head to get some parts off (though it usually ends up with him getting slapped on the eyes by either the head or the root part :D ). Pipi will just eat the neck part of the sprouts, Petpet will sip dry the water from the whole sprout, Pepe will just chew them randomly.

If you haven't done it, give it a try and observe. It's kinda fun to find a new fact everyday by playing with your birds. And you don't have to use expensive pet store toys to play with them. Use your creativity and turn vegetable into toys. They have different shapes and colors. They can easily get chopped and joined together using a skewer, cable tie, toothpicks... Just use your imagination, the possibilities are endless! ;)

Last but not least, a whole new bird‬ comic will be available for 2nd tier patrons starting from January 2016. Don't miss it, join my bird patronage now, get ready to read this hilarious craziest version of Snow white only on my Patreon. Starring: Pepe as Snow white. Pipi, Chopchop, Peanut, Pat, Put, Pit, Pet as 7 Dwarfs.

This will be the last post from me this year. So, Merry Christmas and Happy new year. I'll see you all again in 2016. Cheers!! ^0^/
