might sound harsh but how i got both of my birds to eat pellets is i took everything and put a mix of the exact same stuff i use now about 5 diff pellets in a mix. they may throw it all you may see them yell and angry. they will begin to try them and find one they like. the one you see missing most begin to use more of and watch from there. or just offer that mix always. its very hard to just choose one pellet and say here you go. sometimes i notice they love zoopreem fruit ones, other days they chomp down lafeber pellets. so offer the variety i always say
I wanted to add one more important thing. when I began pellets with jefferson. when little he didnt likem a lot but I moistened them with hot water about 3 min for like a week.. if I remember correctly and he got used to it. I soaked the whole mix. it smells like wet cats and after a while turns to a rock and becomes useless but it worked. he even yells if I put nuts fruit and no pellets now.The main problem with Pestaa is now, his diet. He will not touch anything other than seeds and fruits. He'll rather fast. Seriously, I've provided him other food and pellets, he didn't eat till afternoon! I can't force or starve him. So I'm making seed sprouts, he likes them. For fruits, I've restricted it but can't stop right now. For Inca, I make lots of other foods like boiled rice and potatoes or roasted gram balls. Inca loves them but neither Pestaa nor Rio will eat. Please friends, I need ideas and advice.
