Budgie finally eating other foods

I'm new to budgies. We've had Pippy for 3.5 months and I had given up on her even attempting to try anything new. Today, out of the clear blue, she is very interested at last. I gave a treat of caramel corn to the others, and my GCC was on top of her cage eating hers, and Pippy came right out and was trying to steal it. So I crunched some up, put it in her dish and she was eating it. Added birdie bread and she was checking that out too. I'm so happy. I'm a stickler for the other two (GCC and TAG) eating well and felt bad the budgie wasn't healthy too. I had given up on taming her, but maybe there's hope there too. Fingers crossed.

Congrats on getting your Budgie eating new foods! Budgies are very stubborn when it comes to trying new things.
When I had my Budgies it took me like 3 months to get them to eat pellets.

Thank you. I am excited. She was on a roll today. She was walking around (getting closer to flying after a harsh clip before I got her) and was following the lead of our GCC and almost hopped on my legs and did hop on my feet while I was sitting on the floor. There's hope!!!
