Default Schnitzel Fix

Sorry I haven't posted pics in a couple days, life got busy. Schnitzel is doing great and flying like a champ. He loves being able to fly where he wants to go. He gets around his cage with no problems too and has explored every last inch of it. Schnitzel has also made friends with the sparrows outside and several times a day they will call back and forth. Only issue now is it seems like Schnitzel has decided to no longer to eat his veggies. He'll eat his pellets and sprouts but has decided that the veggies are to be ignored. Is it just a phase he's going through? Any suggestions would be appreciated.




Silly bird

I would guess that Scnitzel will "re-discover" he likes his vegetables again soon. Maybe he's at the budgie "terrible-twos" stage.

I can't believe how much s/he's changed already! How's the other little one doing?

I would just keep offering the veggies even if Schnitzel isn't eating them, it's good that s/he has the option

The other little one died the day after I brought her home. I'm still offering veggies, I just noticed Schnitzel is ignoring them lately. Maybe it is like Deb said, terrible twos,lol. He has gotten a bit of an attitude since he started flying around

I would just keep offering them - as Debs says, it's probably a phase. Mine go through phases. I expect he will start wanting to eat with you... Dizzy has no idea that human food is, well, ours. He sits on cereal bowls, nibbles toast ( they all do) and has been known to land in a plate of curry - and mango chutney on budgies feet gets everywhere.

Lovely to see all is OK, he;s such cutie

No, he's still taking 3-4 feedings a day. Although they are small feedings, his first feeding is the largest though. He's 5 weeks old so we probably have a few more weeks of hand feeding left.

He really is lovely. Keep offering him fresh veggies, but also mulch (grate) some into his seed/pellet mix so he still benefits. Great to see everything going so well.
