Treats

So Marley is my little over a year old Jenday. She loves her pellet food, the occasional sunflower seeds I give her, and apple slices. I have been trying these papaya treats from Kaytee but all she will do is take them from my hand and toss of the floor. I would like to give her a treat but she rejects everything,. Has anyone else seen this? Thanks in advance.

Re: Treats

Hi

have you tried these as a suggestion.

https://lafeber.com/pet-birds/birdfo...r-small-birds/

The only thing to suggest is are the treats in a size that she likes, diced, sliced, thick or thin?

Re: Treats

Plum,
Thanks for the suggestions.
So these are the treats she hates
Kaytee Fiesta Healthy Toppings for Birds 2.5oz

And the food she eats is
HIGH POTENCY FINE-Harrison's Bird Foods

Should I find something closer to these pellets shape and texture?

Re: Treats

Marley, how about slivers of almonds, and/or slivers of pine nuts? Many fids find those irresistible. Just an idea I'm throwing out there.

My own flock is honestly not very 'food/treat driven'. They respond better to verbal praise than the bestest goodie in the whole wide world.

Re: Treats

You can try Millet Spray as well. Some conure loves it.

You could try cutting or processing the treats you already have, it may be size ie too big for her.

Did you look at the Lafabers Treats in the link I gave?

Go light on millet - if she eats a whole stack of that she prob wont want the other good stuff.

Re: Treats

My gang love the strips of organic dehydrated coconut, mango and apples. They can hold it in their feet and eat on it. They seem to prefer that over smaller bite sized pieces.
