    "Jazzy looks like a sweety" ? This little bugger is making me crazy. She now won't step up on my arm anymore and she is definitely winning the war on foods!

    No pellets, no matter how well I try to hide them in things including her nectar.
    No peaches, pears, cantaloupe, blue berries, all melons, kiwi, grapes, sweet potato, broccoli, carrotscorn, peas, green beans.

    She Loves apples, bananas and oranges.

    I'm not even close to being done with trying new things, since I know there are alot out there, but right now I'm worried about her. I doubt if she can stay healthy with just those 3 fruits and nectar.
    Should I give her the nectar every day since she's not getting much nutrition at this point?

    But, after all this complaining, just let me let you all know that I still, and always will, love her to death. She really makes me smile.

    That was my next step, though I did try the sweet potatos and that was no go.

    Are you mixing the baby food with water or rubicon/ceres juice?

    I'm not mixing the baby food with anything. Wouldn't that be depleting the nutritional value.

    The good news is though that she is now eating pellets

    It's not depleting the nutritional value if she's eat all. I mix the quiko with water then add some baby food and then add a bit of the juice.

    No wonder Lories are such poop shooters....LOL That much liquid fruit and I'd be a mess.
