    Keep trying all different ways...perhaps put veggies in Avian Organic bread as you bake it...that and mini pumpkins/squash stuffed with pomegranate were the keys to opening up a healthier diet for my rescue pi but it took offering all sorts of forms of veggis for a year on a daily basis to get him hooked

    Hope this encourages you

    Thanks for the tips! I have a lot to try when she finally comes home. She gets the Asian Medley offered every day, and the days I'm not there with her when they offer, they said she's scared of it. We'll keep working. I got discouraged with my nanday, tried for years. He eats pancakes (well, almond flour and eggs and bananas) so i''m goingto make him a batch with sweet potato and some other things and see if I can bring a few for Penny to try.

    Omg I know! My conure has such tiny eyes compared to her, she's got huge eyes! Luckily, I know better. She can't fool me.
    After talking with the breeder today, it sounds like she won't be ready to come home for another month. She really isn't attempting to wean at all.

    Mine loved pancakes, too! In fact, her favorite dinner was breakfast. I always had to make her a special little pancake first to fill her up on.
    Sweet potato is good for both. It's high in the Vitamin A they both need. Besides, it's fun to watch them get so excited over their edible foot toys! The only thing more loved than sweet potatoes is carrots.

    Yayyyy Penny refused a feed today! It's the first time she's refused formula and I'm so proud of her. We might just get her home this century!

    I know! She's so stinking cute. She was so excited to see us today she hopped right out onto my husband. Usually she wants scritches for a few minutes first. We didn't visit yesterday because life, but also we brought our galah home Friday and wanted to supervise his first full day in the new environment.

    This little stubborn lady still didn't want to give up feedings. So, one of the feeders assessed her location and decided that she might have felt like she was still in the nest. The other day we moved her to a bigger cage and she dropped a feed! And she's maintaining weight! Resized_20180710_153253_5661.jpeg

    Mine doesn't purr; he just agrees not to eat my finger.

    Actually he's been beak-grinding the last 4 days. That is new, it only took him 4 years!

    I would be so excited to bring that baby home, when you are eating (home)say things like nummy, nummy then ask if she wants some. She'll probably just stare at you but she might get curious too.

    Mine grinds her beak constantly!:fairy2:I understand totally when you says it's music.
    I love that she's learning to trust and realize that she deserves respect. Just being in her room brings tears of joy to my eyes!
    I'm so happy for you!!!:hug8:
