Hello! New bird owner here :)

Hi everyone! I've been reading here for a few days and thought I should post a welcome thread thing . I have a blue linnie named Simon, and he's my first bird. He's about 3.5 months old and I've had him for about a month. He's a real goofball and I can't wait to get to know him better and I'm excited to be joining this forum to learn more about being a bird mom

Here are some pictures of him!

Re: Hello! New bird owner here :)

Also hope you are offering fresh veggies s d leafy greens. Since he is young should take to them quickly and pellets,
Such a neat birdie!!!

Re: Hello! New bird owner here :)

Welcome!

That Simon is a good-looking young gentleman, for sure.

Would you like my thoughts on pellets? They do indeed need veggies, legumes, grains... pellets are a good staple. Here's what I use.
http://www.harrisonsbirdfoods.com/
I feed Harrison's, supplemented by fresh healthy treats. My first, and later, my current avian vet recommended it. My bird loves the pellets now, but to get him converted, my avian vet suggested putting pellets out all day, and putting seeds (his old diet) out for two 15-minute periods a day. That would sustain him but leave him hungry enough to try new stuff. I presume the same technique could be used to get him to eat other healthy stuff, like fruits and vegetables! My guy was eating pellets in a couple of days, and now I can feed a good variety of other stuff, knowing he has the pellets as a basic. Pellets are out all day... fresh treats a few times a day. I also like Harrison's via mail because I never have to worry about out-of-date products.

I'm so glad you found us!
