    Is it normal to want to eat your bird’s food?

    Every. Single. TIME I look at pellets/treats/seeds/whatever bird food related, I want to eat it. Have you seen that zupreem pure fun for African Greys? Does that not look absolutely delicious?

    Cinnamon Conure doesn't want to go back into her cage!

    Hey guys :) Papaya, my cinnamon green cheek conure doesn't like going back into her cage after she is let out. I have tried so many different methods such as coaxing her onto a stick, turning off the light and shining a torch inside the cage, and putting her favourite treats inside but she just...

    They’re both starting to do really good!

    So I’m about to put them to bed but I decided to give them some millet before then and I tried for a little bit to get them on my hand, once he was on my hand she pushed him off and was eating for awhile 😂, here’s a picture of her from that moment, this was also a huge difference because earlier...

    Caique Treat Recommendations?

    Hello everyone! Trying to advance in trick training with my 1 year old WBC, but can't seem to find the right treat for the motivation! He's come pretty far, even though he gets distracted and forgets about his reward in the middle of eating it :LOL: Have seen some impressive tricks from...

    Missy is 10 weeks old, nearly finished weaning - down to one top up a day now - if that. She loves peas and corn, cooked egg ( still am thinking cannibal with this)and some seeds and fruit and she is my only bird so what do I feed her and is it something that can be frozen in batches for thawing...

    Introduction with my two Conures

    Hello everybody! New to the forum, and the proud owner of two lovely conures. I’ve had my turquoise gcc Milo for just over 2 years now, and recently got a new baby dusky (Oli). I was a bit worried they wouldn’t get along because Milo hates anyone who isn’t me, but he went into total overbearing...

    Can I feed my parrots frozen veggie mixes?

    I recently bought a package of frozen veggies from the grocery store, it contains a mix of corn, carrots, green beans, and peas. I have seen pictures and videos of people giving their parrots these foods, but some say that corn can be deadly for them. Are the other foods safe, even if they’re in...

    Hello everyone, I've lived almost all my life around birds and after leaving my parents house I've been missing that. I'm getting myself a cockatoo (I have experience around cockatoos). I think I know how to handle him, and if not, you'll soon hear me looking for help :P I've researched all...

    New ekkie owner!!!

    I have some questions! I just got my new boy from a coworker who wasnt giving him enough attention (but otherwise took great care of him). He has been on the same diet for about his whole life I think, for a majority of it. Just frozen veggies, some beans and frozen fruit, and pellets. She also...

    parrot pack lunch suggestions

    Lola comes into work daily and usually wants to join in when ever somebody is eating. There were people who kept bags of nuts (everyone knows parrots like nuts) in their draw for these moments but we have had a big turn around and i don't want this to go back as too many aren't good. Instead i...

    Foraging ideas for Lovies and Budgies?

    I've been watching YouTube videos on ways to create foraging toys for small birds. There are a few solid ideas, but I'd love to hear what you do for your Lovies to encourage them to forage. Ideas I have so far: 1. put treats in paper cups and mash them closed. Then place in bowl where food is...

    A debate on treats

    Hi everyone, hope all is well! I was wondering what type of treats you find most useful when training your birds. Our 3 year old caique Murphy came to us knowing a handful of commands, but I would like to start working on some fun tricks so he can get more mental stimulation and as an...

    Treats for Training a Conure

    What are some good treats for giving my Black Capped Conure when training him? He is 3 months old and my first bird. I want to make sure I feed him something that is special so it seems like a reward and also not too filling, and of course not unhealthy! Thanks in advance!

    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...

    Help: Treats Guide

    Hiya, Leo is almost 9 months CAG. We have had him for two months only. We taught him to step up and down. He goes in his cage to eat when we say "food time". We talk to him all the time. When I say "I'm just gonna touch your head" he offers his head for a scratch. That happened by it self. Now...

    The Pickiest Parakeet!

    Earlier in January, I bought a 4-month old parakeet who had been hand-fed, but due to fighting with other flock members, was removed from the group after he was weaned and I believe his hand interactions were stopped then, which is unfortunate. Why would someone stop putting effort into...

He loves his pineapple so much that I can place him in one room, hide his pineapple in my pocket, walk a couple rooms away, hold the pineapple up and he will fly right for it. Its really cute. I call...

    Treats and training

    Hello everyone, I am trying to train my GCC to improve his behavioral responses ( no biting, get off my shoulder when I need him to get down, etc). My vet suggested that I use a treat as a positive reinforcement when training him. The problem that I am having is that I can not seem to find a...
