Birdie's Choice Step-by-Step Plan
Choose up to three different types of pelleted food for your bird.
Place your bird on a safe table top that allows him to move around.
Create a few small piles of pellets of each type of food on the table.
Tap in front of the piles to get your bird’s attention. Spread the piles out a little if necessary.
Praise your bird and scratch their head as they start to eat the food.
You can also place a bird safe mirror flat on the table to stimulate your bird’s interest as he sees another bird eating the food.
Once he starts eating the food, place the food they most readily enjoy in the cage.
Monitor your bird’s intake to ensure your bird is eating the proper portion of food each day.
