Today I was on the couch with my princess parrot, getting a little down time between classes, and I was having some chips as a snack food.. Now Duke never mooches when I have healthy foods like carrots, and apples. Today Duke was mooching like a son of a gun, stealing the food right out of my hand before I could bring it to my mouth. I've noticed he only wants my food when I have something bad for him like cookies, pastries, or chips. I'm beginning to think his previous owner let him eat these things. Which would explain why he never wants my healthy food, because they let him eat whatever he wanted. Which brings another question. How do I get him to stop mooching, and become interested in the foods that are good for him?

solo and marley LOVE fruit and veg but they each have one thing that they not allowed for solo its sugar grains he will dive head first into the sugar bowl if he can get close enough ( which is hardley ever) but he can only eat one grain at a time so he never gets more then that before i grab the bowl. and for marley it warm drinks so i have found a way around that i just put warm water in a mug for him if i am drinking tea to distract him
