Sometimes you just have to be creative!Hello, thank you very much for sharing your knowledge.
My Rorro doesn't like the pellets since in his previous life the owners left him with just pellets and sunflowers seeds, and sometimes, pumpkin seeds for a whole week. He likes the Sweet harvest Conure and lovebird food, which has several seeds grains and fruits, especially he loves the papaya on it. He has improved a lot. So far I have only been able to make him eat fresh organic orange and apple. I buy him organic banana chips which sometimes he wants them and other times he doesn't care about them.
I tried to cook some lentils and rice, but he didn't eat them at all. Only once he tried bell pepper. I also gave him finely chopped celery and carrots but they were ignored as well.
He doesn't like the clusters of dehidrates fruit with seeds. Any suggestions from your experience?
If he likes oranges, then perhaps stuffed mini sweet peppers? You can stuff them with sprouted seeds, apple, kale, and other healthy items. Hang them up or place around the cage for him to explore.
It's usually best to offer new foods first thing in the morning without their regular foods. You *can* mix some of what they are familiar with into the new foods to make it more enticing, but not much.
