    Pellet Problems

    Hi all! I’ve been having a very hard time converting my cockatiel to pellets. I’ve tried multiple (healthy) brands to find her favorite, and she 100% recognizes them as food, but she will only eat them if I sit with her and pretend to eat them too. And even then she only eats a few before...

    New Food

    Hi everyone! I just got my Budgie a new type of food and she is not interested in it whatsoever. I know it can take a while to adjust them to new food, but I was wondering if there were any ways to make it more interesting to her so she will want to eat it. I tried offering it as a treat so it...

    Donating Supplies

    Sorry if this isn't the right place for this, I'm still getting the lay of the land. :ashamed3: My baby tiel passed away on Thursday and another 44 oz bag of her pellets is coming in soon. I don't want it to go to waste. If anyone knows a rescue, sanctuary, or home (preferably in Southwest...

    Lovebird Diet

    Hi everyone, I’ve been doing some reading online about lovebird diets and apparently you are not supposed to feed them a lot of seeds. I’ve had my lovebird mango for less then a year and I occasionally give him veggies and fruits, I also give him pellets but he barely touches them. Do you guys...

    Pellet Question

    Hello all! I have recently begun converting my new cockatiel, Cricket, from seeds to pellets. I have found that he really likes the Zupreem Natural pellets, but the medium size (which is designed for cockatiels) is a little too big for him to eat comfortably and seems to be discouraging him...

    Can budgies eat cockatiel pellets?

    My budgie Sky has been on Harrison’s lifetime mash for awhile now and she seems to like it (or at least tolerate it) but lately she has taken to sneaking into our cockatiel’s cage and eating his pellets as well. Our cockatiel is currently on HARI’s Tropimix, we were wondering if it would be...

    What can I feed my birds instead of pellets?

    Hello everybody! ;) I’m a new owner of 2 cute lovebirds. Currently I feed them seeds and homemade chop full of veggies and some fruits. Unfortunately I couldn’t find any pellets in my area. If I order anything online it could take few months before it comes here :shifty: How can I make sure my...

    Hi. I posted here a while ago about which pellets people recommended and I finally found a pellet that they eat! And they eat it willingly which they didn’t before! They like the Zupreem fruit blend. My question is, should they be eating the natural pellets over the fruit blend? Should they be...

    Hi everyone! Since bringing home my canaries a few weeks ago, I've been feeding them the seed mix they'd been eating where I adopted them from. I didn't want to introduce too many new things at once. However, about a week ago I started mixing canary pellets in with their food. They haven't even...

    Foods similar to Harrison's?

    My two cockatiels' favorite food is Harrison's extra fine, they love it and there's no wasted food. Unfortunately, it's a little difficult to get my hands on right now so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for foods with a similar texture? I've tried roudybush, they eat it but the...

    My GCC won’t eat his pellets

    Hello I recently added a baby yellow sided GCC to our family. He is such a wonderful bird who is very cuddly and curious but he won’t eat his pellets! He was given to us with a food mix that had pellets in it but mostly seeds, I have mixed the food mix into zupreem pellets but he just picks...

    Converting to pellets

    Hello, I recently recieved my diseased grandmother's female pied cockatiel. Bernie, said cockatiel hasn't exactly had the best living condition. Always sitting in her cage with a blanket over it. Sadly she had been on a diet of parakeet seed, which I am currently trying to change. I've tried...

    Happy dance food update

    I figured I'd be in for a struggle. But this morning I skipped the seed and gave my fids pellets and veggies. My loves are a nightmare batch when it comes to pellets and seed. But I wanted them eating a variety of foods. My vet pushes for pellets, my avian friends say seed, and everyone...

    Update on Pepper

    Don’t know if you all remember but I wrote here to get some advice on how to get my gorgeous cockatoo Pepper onto pellets. She had become obese from a 37 year seed diet and was at risk of developing fatty liver disease so I had to change her diet, she has lost most of the extra weight she’s down...

    Bird food measurements?

    Sorry if this has been discussed before, I tried to search but didn't come up with anything. Does anyone have any resources for the amounts of certain foods that should be fed to pet birds? For example, the diet of an eclectus is specialized enough that you often find detailed information...

    Cockatiel eats everything!

    So I got Plato this Wednesday and everything is going amazingly well. Since Socrates already came sick I never really experienced what was having a real cockatiel. Plato seems very healthy, he's very active and loved the toys I gave him right away. Within two days he was practically fully...
