Mango is well loved here, too. I think they know how much something costs, because the higher the cost the more they love it. :D Now papaya costs even more and they think it is heavenly.

Side note, I give them the seed of the mango too. I think it is helpful for wearing on the beak. ;)

I didn't think of that, good idea. Do they nibble on it to get the last few scraps of mango goodness?

I normally give the seed part to the Bells hingebacks because they come in here with longer beaks from all the soft foods folks give them. Yes, they do scrape down those seeds rather well. :D
