Love bird won't eat fruits/ veggies

Hi Everybody,

I am new here. My name is Sarah. I have two love birds and a indian ringneck parrot. The love bird's names are pin pin and the indian ring neck is om nom.

I have a question to ask regarding my love birds. They do not eat fruits or vegetables. I tried everything but they just won't eat it. I also tried hand feeding them but they won't eat em. Can anyone tell me how to make them eat fruits?
Thanks a lot for your help.

Sarah

persistence, keep trying


also, i would cut them up in different ways to see if maybe they like them bigger or smaller. i would cut some in chunks, some in little tidbits, some in strips, some all over the place, or even offer some whole.

also, hanging lettuce from the cage top might peak some interest, as well as wedging broccoli and carrots through the cage bars.

try offering in different kinds of bowls, plus different areas of the cage.

i find my birds prefer to eat their veggies in different ways more than others. so see what catches any interest and then just keep trying


in the morning, feed them the veggies for about a half hour before you give them their regular food. having them more hungry will make them more willing to try it.

Casey's post was very good! I feed all fresh foods in the morning and it works great, especially now it's the breeding season, they're stuffing food away like no tomorrow!

It really, really takes patience and persistence. The others have given great advice, and
I wish you luck trying to get them to eat fresh foods!
