Mave is SO stubborn!
I swear the silly little bird refers to his pellets like "well if you aren't eating Brussels Sprouts I don't see why I should eat these". It's funny, no matter WHAT I do, you couldn't pay him enough to want his pellets. He is so funny about it though. I have been trying to add blueberries to his diet a little..and he will pick up a berry like he is going to eat it, let me feel all excited that he might actually eat something good for him, then drop it and pretend he has no knowledge of it ever being there. Silly silly little guy. I hope that he will ease into his pellets, I know it takes a seed junkie some time to take to them. I still love him tons though! :D Got his DNA test kit in the mail the other day..not I have to bring myself around to actually "doing the deed". I think I will make my boyfriend do it...haha..

Re: Mave is SO stubborn!
see if he likes apple juice or Orange juice if so sprinkle a little juice on the pellets or dunk them in juice and offer as treat he may start just licking the juice off, but he might start eating some of the pellets.

I know what you mean. Our Boomer would sometimes painstakingly carry a stick of cantaloupe to his favorite perch by the window, take a nibble and drop it nonchalantly all the while looking at me.

Let us know how the kit testing goes. Im curious about it but not sure how reliable it is and how safe. Wishing you luck!

Haha... he sounds like a parrot ;) Both of mine LOOOVE tearing food out of my hands just to look at me, smirk (they DO!), and let it fall to the ground.
