    Eddie's Dorito Obsession

    I made the mistake of giving eddie a tiny piece of dorito as a treat. Now every time he sees a red bag or hears crinkling bags, he starts running around and screaming and yelling, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING? COME HERE!". He goes through phases of being obsessed with various foods. Sometimes its a...

He’s been eating seeds so far, with ocassional millet mixed in when he steps up (still in progress of taming). I put in a fresh raspberry on the first week, but he didn’t touch it.

    My bird wont eat

    I got my bird from the shelter about a day and a half ago and she hasn't eaten since then. I put some millet and some yogurt bird treats to try to entice her but she hasn't really eaten it. I'm getting worried and I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on getting parakeets to eat.

    Best Cockatiel Pellets?

    I was thinking on switching my 4 month old cockatiel, Mika, from his seed diet to a pellet diet. I've looked into some different brands of pellets but I'm still not for sure which one to get.. I feel like the seeds are a little too fatty for him, so far he won't really eat any other fruits or...

    How much should I feed my bird?

    when I say how much I mean like how many cups. I have a green cheek conure, about 6 months old. The pet shop I got him from was feeding him half seed and half pallets, and I'm doing that, I just don't know how much I'm meant to be giving him every 24 hours. I give him 3/5 of a cup in the morning...

    Hi everyone, I am looking for some advice regarding my budgies’ diets. I give them ZuPreem fruit blend pelleted food as a daily diet staple.
