    any new treat suggestions for a picky tiel?

    Hello again! My cockatiel has tried many treats but she is really picky and enjoys them for maybe a day or two. So far, I have tried: brocolli, apples, banana, no sugar/salt crackers, cheerios, cooked rice (THIS she loves), pasta, mangoes, cucumbers, and carrots. Any other suggestions?? I can't find any unsalted/unbuttered popcorn in any grocery store and I heard they love those.

    Thanks!

    Try getting a Subway sandwich. It'll be fun for you two to share. Also, green beans seem to be universal for birds.

    THANX! As for the green beans, cooked, raw, or canned?
    Just wondering! I also finally found the popcorn (unsalted/unbuttered) at a natural food store and it wasn't a hit =(

    I've read they LOVE celery tops (the leafy part) hung form the top of the cage!

    I don't feed my 'teil anything canned 'casue the salt content is uaually very high, plus the preservatives.

    Re: subway

    ya don't want to put anything on anything..... just natural!
    celery tops definatly a fav! brown bread, make your own 'birdie bread' or mix (check out the home page i think..) silver beet.... pretty much any leafy vegies, infact i can't think of a bad vegie (except iceburg lettuce is a waste of time) experiment! and if he only like it for a day or two, why are you feeding it for a day or two!? feed it one day, feed something different the next....

    Re: subway

    Ive heard some really love cooked peas, potato ( no salt) A little bit of cooked egg.... Just keep trying, its the best way.. .you would be surprised at what they might find...Took has a deep love for pasta sauce and ketchup ( which she isnt allowed too often) Apples, Toast with no butter, Rich tea biscuits, a little pineapple, tomato, Apple juice, orange juice, natural yoghurt.... the list goes on. Just experiment and watch out for crisps... I dont know anyone who has a bird that doesnt adore them
