    My Bird won’t eat veggies

    What are some recommendations of fruits and veggies to give to my Cockatiel? I have had mine for 5 years and I have tried so many things to get her to eat but she just doesn’t eat any thing!

    Hi, and welcome. It takes time and patience to teach them to eat veggies and fruits. My suggestion is to take some fresh kale, leaf lettuce, broccoi, carrots, and peeled apples, and put in a chopper, or food processer, and chop all in fine, small pieces. You can use most any veggie or fruit you choose. Take this chop mix, and put some on a small plate, in a small bowl, or in a seed cup. Put plate on cage floor. Sprinkle some seeds on top, and add just a tiny amount of apple juice sprinkled over the top. You also can add some chopped boiled eggs. Also, you can take some of the veggie and or fruit mix, and fill each cube in an ice cube tray. Put tray in freezer. Then, each morning, take a cube out of tray, defrost it, and place on plate. I would do both methods for awhile to see if he will take to some favorites.

    You can use your own choices by experimenting. The main goal is to keep trying different ones every day until you find some he will eat. You can also hang fresh lettuce and kale in the cage as well, feeding both chopped and those veggies together. Try some fresh sliced apples too. Tiels are not into fruits as much as veggies. At least from my own experience they like veggies better.
