Broccoli only?

Pip loves his broccoli. I give him a floret almost every day. I usually provide him some other veggie as well, but is that necessary? Iím just wondering if I only give him the broccoli some days is that okay or do I need to provide additional things?
He also gets fruit (a raspberry, blueberry, blackberry or something else) daily. Usually I sprinkle this with chia or some other treat.

I tend to offer a lot of broccoli florets as well since it requires little advance preparation and keeps well. I do try to offer other veggies, but sometimes I run out or have not prepped them in advance. Broccoli is great for birds, but so is offering a variety of different colored veggies in general. Orange colored veggies tend to have a lot of vitamin A, as a generalization. I personally feel that providing just broccoli as a veggie a few days a week in addition to a diverse diet, would not be a problem.

Thumbs up

I offer Ricochet broccoli almost every day. He loves it, just like Bogie did. I also offer carrots a couple times a week with the broccoli. I take a small inch long very thin slice and slit it into small strips, then chop it a little. I add it right to Ricochet's food. He eats every bite of it. Carrots do not spoil or ruin any food it touches.
