Sorry I have never tried it... I do use Zupreem fruity for my budgies and parrotlet , I also have some for my GCC but he likes the red ones best and then his poop has an alarming blood red color to it... both my son and I panicked when we first saw it, looked like he pooped out a whole lot of blood!! I am in the process of switching him over to Zupreem naturals so I don't have a heart attack every time he poops...LOL

We used to feed it to the birds at the pet shop, they all took to it pretty well. For your little birds, I would recommend the smallest Kaytee naturals pellet, or roudybush nibbles. They're the size of millet and look like millet, so it's usually pretty easy to trick them into eating it You can try enticing them to eat the pellets by soaking it in some hot water, making a soft warm mush. Or soak it in a little fruit juice

i have tried the naturals of several different brands they will not touch it after about a month i had their food nothing but the natural and they refused to eat for a couple of days. so i gave them their normal food and they were starving they eat like it was their last meal. i wish they would eat the natural but they just will not i am hoping the flavor will work

I use the zupreem, because as I recall the other brands of pellets contained artificial colors (the Kaytee one did at least). I have the parrot sized for Hector and have to soak them a minute then drain, otherwise he doesn't touch them. he doesn't touch the tiny fruit ones either (that I got for my budgies) but I think its the size more than anything. he doesn't pick out the millet in his seed mix unless I hand them to him. He seems to ignore things smaller than a safflower seed.
