:welcomesign: Pippa! Exciting times ahead!!! Obi should have unlimited access to food during the day. You'll be able to adjust the portions as you get to know him. I still overfill the fresh food bowls!

They will usually eat about 10 to 20% of their body weight every day. My ideal is about 70% pellets, 25% fresh foods (veggies, a bit of fruit), and 5% treats (seeds, nuts, etc). Your bird may have their own ideas about what they want to eat ;)

Welcome to the Avenue Pippa! :starshower1:

I always have dry food avail. for my birds and offer fresh veggies/fruits for breakfast - you will know after a few days how much of the fresh foods they eat and can adjust accordingly.
