Fruits and Veggies
My green cheek conure, Kiwi has been with us now for a couple weeks. When we got Kiwi we were told to get this mix for food that was seeds, fruit pellets, and so on, so we did. She seems to love it. After continuing my research, which I had also done before purchasing Kiwi and had second thoughts about purchasing the food that I did but thought the clerk would know what he was talking about. I went back and got some different food that is more of a mixture of nuts, dried fruits, etc. and mixed it all together and she seems to love this mix.
My problem now is that I cannot get Kiwi to eat any fruits or vegetables. I have tried hand feeding it to her, putting it to where it is the only thing she can get to while she is out of her cage (which is a lot more than she is in it). Should I try cooking them, or smashing them up or something. Any ideas please help.
One more thing while I am here. When we first got Kiwi she loved to take a bath. I would just fill a bowl up with warm water and she would jump right in. After a week or so, she just quit doing it. Now I use a spray bottle and spray her down and she seems to love that. She comes up and spreads her wings and lets me spray her down. Is this normal?
