    Kale chips and other vegetables

    So I managed to get Max, my green cheek conure, to eat kale by making it into chips. I just ripped the leaves off, spread into a baking tray, baked in high until they are crispy, and Max seems to enjoy them much more willingly. Would love to see how you guys "trick" your fids into eating green...

    Quick Food Question!

    I've been considering getting this blend for my cockatiel as I'm looking for new ways to make him eat his veggies (he is picky, just like me.. oops!) but I've been wondering if the pieces would be too big for his little beak. I know he is able to eat pieces this size but it's more work and I...

    What foods do your cockatiels love? (fruit/veg?)

    I'm wary Tango is becoming a bit of a seed junkie. She can be quite picky and is reluctant to eat wet food. She'll nibble on the stems left on grape vines, and will sometimes take broccoli and lettuce. What do your tiels like?

    How do you introduce vegetables?

    I got my cockatiel, Onyx, from a local pet shop where he had been stuck for at least 6 months. I assume they didn't feed vegetables, because he is not interested what so ever :( How would you introduce vegetables to birds that lack interest?

    Conure friendly plants?

    I'm growing some veggies in containers and recently got a hold on some container variety of pea, it grows very short and bushy with small pods just about 2-3 peas each. My GCC loves peas! I used to give her whole pods last summer. I was wondering, though, if it was okay to give her access to the...

    Getting Scarlet Macaw to Eat Fresh Produce

    Hi all, I apologize if this topic or something similar has already been discussed, but I'm having some issues with getting my big mac to eat fruits and veggies. He's a 17 year-old re-home that I've had for a couple of weeks. He's eating pellets and nuts fine, and shows interest when I present...
