thanks all for your tips and recipes marion yes i know they are a different type of parrot to the grey i did my research (a lot of research) and yes the breeder a very good breeder in my opinion in mattyjordan yes i had diet sheets ete etc and he is always there for advice he did tell me that at the moment taffy prefered seed to fruit and veggies but just to persevere with the fruits etc on getting him home i was just happy that he is eating something as he was a bit nervous of his new surroundings. now however he is eating fine as far as seed goes but is starting to take a little fruit and veg now that he has settled down i have started taking the seed from his cage untill the evening, I make him fruit kebabs one day then veggies the next which hangs next to his favorite perch he always has a bowl of fresh sprouts mung beans chickpeas and aduki beans which i mix in a little of his seed to try and get him interested he enjoyed pomegranate. loves a little apple slightly warmed in the microwave so yes i know he needs a different diet and trying lots of different things to tempt him.the fruits and vegs i have tried so far consist of sprouts as above ,apple banana,melon pineapple grapes kiwi blueberries pomegranate,carrot broccoli cauliflower peas green salad leaves rocket spinach peppers red and yellow also jalapeno peppers.
he has also had millet sprays and and them fruity parrot treats u hang from the cage.so i believe i have given him a varied diet and he will have scrambled egg tomorrow and every sat shell included.
tomorrow will be the end of his first week with us and he has settle quite well considering he is only a baby he has just statred the last 2 days playing with his toys showing me that he is starting to settle.if im doing anything wrong please say as i wont be offended always greatfull for advice. he comes out at least 3 times a day for an hour or so at the moment flys around and crash lands, which is improving with practice he will step up on command already so i am hopefull i can teach him lots of new tricks.he gets a light spraying each morning and sat i hope to give him a shower if he will let me without stressing him too much sorry about the essay but love talking about him as i have waited so long to get him.
