Update. Thanks for advice, the combo of all the above worked. DiDi the gcc is loving the zupreem fruit pellets. He's eating all the different colors. What really helped was hand feeding him a few and then he caught on. He wipes them all out and uses he little feet to feed himself.

Re: My baby GCC loves Safflower seeds only

Question. He’s eating 1/4 cup of the pellets by the afternoon. Is this ok? I then feed him some seeds and veg and fruit. What’s wild. The pellets are gone by 2pm.

Re: My baby GCC loves Safflower seeds only

Thats great news if he is eating all his pellets. Always have them in his bowl because they are so good and healthy and will prolong his lifespan by years. Its his main diet. Sounds like everything is great diet wise so good job.

When he is more trained you can weigh him every day or 2 and then if he is a little over weight just cut down on the seeds coz they are high in fat.

Also try find something he really likes to eat to use as just training treats. The seeds would work great if he is eating all his pellets. He wont need seeds anymore i dont think but im not 100% sure on the Conure diet x

Re: My baby GCC loves Safflower seeds only

My GCC does the exact same thing. I am going to try all of the great ideas to get him to try something new. Thanks so much

Re: My baby GCC loves Safflower seeds only

converting early is always good, I will say Zupreem whilst not the healthiest isn't exactly bad for them, maybe controversial but I'd prefer a happier bird on the second or third best diet as opposed to a bird on the healthiest diet who doesn't enjoy their food

Re: My baby GCC loves Safflower seeds only

Try the sweetcorn on the cob. the small ones. Xander loves it but will only eat it on the cob which is weird. Its fun for them pulling them off and fighting a little for food x

Re: My baby GCC loves Safflower seeds only

Still working on him eating pellets. He is very stubborn! I'm going to stay with it. Only fruit he seems to like is grapes. I've tried everything. Love's carrots, lettuce and grapes. Won't even try anything else. any other ideas to help?
