Cute Mango

mango was so stinking cute this morning
so ive been giving him single pellets by hand through the cage bars.
hes been thinking theyre a very special treat. he comes over for them, nips me until he realizes i got food for him. then he takes it and eats it. thats how i introduced the pellets to him.
well then he got so used to me doing it, when i DIDNT give him a pellet, he ran from the front perch to the back of the cage to his food ledge and grabbed a pellet, and ran back to the front of the cage and ate the pellet there. it was like he was saying "fine, you wont give me a special treat, i'll get my own and pretend you did"

i have been trying to get them on pellets, Hagen failed on the lovebirds, but Zupreem is a hit!

i have samples from fruity parakeet sized and the natural cockatiel size. thats what we are currently trying out to see what they like best, but all 4 birds like both or one or the other so we are going to be buying both. just gotta wait to order from my local store--they only order zupreem every 4-6 months and i have to special order it for myself as they dont keep it in stock because it goes bad. most people here dont feed pellets or anything other than seed to their birds. the petstore feeds their birds pellets, seeds and veggies. i love this place. but they are willing to order it for me when they do their orders from the company they get it from.
