It's clear you love your baby! And it's great to always see if there is stuff you can do to make them even healthier!
Try sharing a salad with her, or some meals that bird safe, s little cooked pasta , cooked squash, cooked sweet potato, cooked oatmeal. It's fun to share and makes them more adventurous in trying new stuff...
GCC do seem to like fruit more than my Quakers, some good fruits are plums, raspberry, blackberries, pomegranate, strawberry, cherries, blueberries, all good, im not a fan of dried fruit..
i will say too she will try anything im eating/drinking and whenever i try to get her try new things i have to eat it or pretend to eat it first. my bring currently lives in the basment where me and my girlfriend spend most of our time. mostly because its the only pace she is safe from the dogs. would it be a good idea to try and use a UV since there isnt much natural lighting in this room.

also the place where she lives may not be the best but currently it is my only option since i live with my girlfriend and her mother has two dogs one of which trys to eat my little mango. would it be a good idea to have a uv light for her?

Re: Is she okay?(spots on feathers)

Yes, pease be very careful of the dried fruit as most commercially available brands have added sugar, juice, and/or preservatives! As far as baths go, my GCC is not a fan of bathing in a dish but she does LOVE it when I spray her with the spray bottle...the one I have has an ULTRA fine mist that sprays continuously when you pump it up. I can for the life of me remember where I got it but I do know that it was made for misting water on clothing while ironing.

the dried fruit she eats is from her food which the pet store recommended for her since it was what the breeder whas feeding her. its HARi Tropimix.

Re: Is she okay?(spots on feathers)

Also, it’s not just the hawks you have to worry about! Crows and Ravens will also go after smaller birds! I would highly recommend not taking her out unless you have a way to secure her...it really only takes a fraction of a second for something terrible to happen!

i have a travel cage i use for her but i just hate keeping her stuck in it. her wings are clipped and she never leaves my shoulder when we are outside.but i will try to keep her in the cage when i go out. also i just noticed are birds look almost identical.

Re: Is she okay?(spots on feathers)

Darn just lost all I typed. .
Bird lights highly and hotly debated..
Real sun 15 minutes three times a week is best( my opinion) and even in light shade is good as my vet told me. You can use your travel cage with doors zip tied go for a walk with girlfriend, or a bike ride I use my mobility scooter and xio around the hood. Since you guys in basement I think it be great for you all..
