Blue and gold macaw

So I have a blue and gold macaw Iíve hade him for about a year and he does not eat fruits heís only been eating pellets every time I put him fruits he picks up the trey and drops it I was wondering on how I could train him to eat them.Also one more thing I work all day do u think spending like 2 1/2 hrs with my bird all day is good enough or do I need more. My brothers is always home but he just sits next to him not really giving him attention.

Re: Blue and gold macaw

Eating pellets is not nessecarily bad for your macaw, ifthey are good brand of pellets, but intriducing new foods esp high quality vegatable ( not fruits) is a good idea. Fruits are the last thing you should try to bring to his daily diet. Peppers, esp HOT ones, and loaded w/vitamin A, which is usually missing in parrot diets. Dark leafy veggies like kale, bokchoy, and others . NO letucces, which are mostly water and litle use.
