Hi I have a lovebird named birbie and have had her since august. She is a great little bird but I worry about her since she will only eat seed. Any time i give her fruit or veg whether it is chopped or mooshed or just as it comes she is terrified of it. I have tried mixing it with seed or putting it in her normal bowl or just handing it to her and she will scream everytime she realizes it is there and fly away. I just want to give her the best health possible any feedback is welcomed!

My birds had the same problem.. I overcame this by
1 Eating in front of them and soundiny excited about food. Most of the time if they were fed only seeds before they dont know that veggies are edible xD
2 after they succesfully touched the target stick giving them veggies. Because they are used to getting millet as a reward. Target=great food.
3. Iceverg salad. It has no nutritional value but helps them to see green stuff as food. They loved the cold salad on hot summer days, it was basicaly edible water! After that i gave them other green leaves like spinach.
4. Never giving up. Eben if they eat iceberg salad for a month and nothing else. Chop stuff up for them, cut them small, big, in heart shapes idk xD
Also usually birbs really like broccoli, carrots and figs so you can start with those! Just eat with you bird that helps very much
