Change of Diet

Sophia and Hilke went to the pet shop to buy parrot food for me. The pet shop owner noticed that they had been there very often lately, so he asked them how much they feed me every day. They told him that they fill my food bowl some four times a day, as soon as I begin asking for it. The shop keeper was shocked! He said parrots have to finish all their food before they get a fresh supply! Hilke and Sophia were deeply shocked, so they told Jan as soon as they got home and they all made a solemn promise: from now on I only get seeds once a day, so that I take in all variety. Apparently, the little seeds are the most important and they were the ones the family always threw away...
