Hello there.
hope everyone has a good time ^-^
So, my problem is with my tweet's eating
He barely eats much even when i offer his favorite food.
Does it because i always put food every time for him (i don't want him to get hungry )
Well i want to know how much of food does a less than a year old IRN eat in day?
His diet includes: pasta, veggies, fruit, seed(mix but he prefers sunflower).
Also how many meals he need daily?
tweety's doing well, his feather is growing and he's attracted to me A LOT

Is it ok for not offering food every time?
Shall i start to give him meal at exact time ( like breakfast, lunch and dinner )?
Also i what is the best pellet i can buy for him for the first time?

Sorry for too many questions but i'm worried about my baby :"(

Is some food available to him all the time? If no, you may want to do that because he may not be hungry at that given point of time.

Yes i always make sure there's food all time in front of him
So maybe that's why he doesn't eat much because he knows there's food always....

I have food available at all times for them. I do two "meals". In the morning I give fresh foods, and refill foraging toys with pellets and nuts. Then remove the fresh food after a few hours. An hour before bedtime I refill his dry food bowl with pellets and Nutriberries.

If he's a picky eater, Zupreem Fruity tends to be the easiest pellet to convert them too, then you can usually switch later to an undyed and unsweetened pellet.
