In addition to my Kiki's diet, I add some seed and dried fruit from the seed bags you buy at pet stores. Since the pieces in those bags are large, I like to hand them to Kiki for her to eat while she is venturing out of her cage. I do it randomly while she's walking around and exploring, whenever I feel like it basically. Will she think I am rewarding her for something, and could I therefore be cluelessly encouraging random or bad behaviors? Or will she just see this as me feeding her? My vet says that FOR SURE a bird's regular daily food can be used as treats, that having to find something special for them when you are training them is a myth.
