Convert Your Bird to Eat Fruits/Vegetables

Here are a few suggestions that may get your bird eating vegetables:

1) Push some seeds into a piece of broccoli, apple banana or any other fruit or vegetable.
2) Weave a carrot top or celery leaf in the bars of the cage
3) Try different size pieces of various fruits and vegetables – some very tiny pieces that you can put in a dish or some larger pieces that you hang up in the cage.
4) Eat the food in front of your bird and offer him a piece from your hand or from your plate.

Remember that it might take anywhere from a few days to a few months to convince your bird to eat these foods, but for your bird’s health, please keep trying.

Do not remove the seeds to try to make your bird hungry enough to eat the fruits or vegetables. A bird can starve himself before trying to eat something that he does not know is food.
