I haven't seen Bella drink in about 36 hours. She ate millet from my hand this afternoon; that's all she has eaten that I can tell.

What should I do?

Violet can easily go all day without drinking when she is at work with me. I freaked out at first, but she's fine- perky and sassy, etc. I just don't think tiels drink lots of water- think about where they originally came from- dry areas, etc.

She is pooping. Well, right now she's sleeping...but overall today she groomed, stretched a lot, chattered, flew around a bit, slept, gave me kisses :), explored a tiny bit (not as much as I would expect)...

You might try offering some grapes? They're full of moisture and might be a good treat.

Thanks Christa. All I have seen her eat is a lot of millet from the palm of my hand early this afternoon.

Hmmm.....what do you offer her daily? If her poops are normal that means she is eating, just not when you see her.

This happened with my skittles,
I thought he wasn't drinking, and people on AA said check the poop, if it's runny he is hydrated, if dry then not, skittles poop was dry, so what I did was I introduced the water bowl to him. I grabbed it and offered the bowl near his neck, nd I would splash it a bit, and then would sort of push it to him ( as a way of saying go on have some!) also talk to him and make noises like "Oooooo, Yumm Yumm!" and he might dip his beak and have a look, if not, put it back in the origan spot, after that, skittles came and drank, and no more dry poop :)
As for food, i was also giving skittles millet, and so he took no interest in his actual food, so i took skittles out of the cage and repeated the water thing, and maybe pick bits of fruit/ vegetables from it and feed them to him in your hand, and that's how skittles started eating. Now he wakes me up every morning, and wont stop screaming until he gets his breakfast!
Good Luck! :)

Ok, this morning I saw her take a couple sips of water!!! YAY

And while I am holding her, she will eat apple, strawberry, yellow pepper and millet. Are they really such social birds that she wont eat unless I am feeding it to her? I am not always going to have time several times a day to feed her...

Feed some to here, then have some in your hand nd drop it in the food bowl, if she really wants it, she will eat from the bowl to get it :)

She is wonderful. She was so excited to see me this morning. She practically ran onto my hand. She has eaten some fresh foods already. And her poops are much wetter today, so I think we're good on that end. Her poops are super green though. I am not used to that. Maybe cause she eats more seed than my ekkies?

d'oh...just found out she likes my laptop :o:
