Vegies / fruits/

I was wondering if it's alright for me to give HoneyBear some Vegitables and fruits on her first day home? Will it help her get used to liking them? I know that they eat some foods that cockatiels eat as well and are able to eat foods that tiels can eat too. but, I want to find out if I should wait a few days or give her some vegi's to munch on for a few to get the taste of? Also which vegies would be safe to leave in her cage over night before I get up to change her treat dish over?

You can try to give her some. Whether she'll actually eat them or not, I don't know. Is she eating her regular food at all? If she's not, I doubt she'd try the fruits and veggies you'd leave her. And as for leaving them overnight, I wouldn't, because bacteria can build up fast. Even if you don't offer her fresh foods now, you can try later when she's more comfortable and you'll probably have better luck.

You're welcome to try but like I said I wouldn't leave any fresh foods in there overnight.

I wouldn't be giving bread, but you can make your own birdy bread regarding fruit and veg, she will need a lot of it. Well actually, veg mostly. Not so much fruit, fruit should be fed around 3 times a week with a variety in place whereas veg is unlimited. If you wanna make some fresh foods for your baby that you can freeze then please check out the food link in my siggy
