I got Alistair eating pellets!
Well, sort of.
He now has a veggie bowl, where i put his leaves an other 'non-seed' things. So I've added in some pellets over the top of the leaves.
I've already got his seed mix with a few pellets in, and so I wanted to see how far along he was with his pellet-phobia, as I called it. He picked up some of the pellets from my hand and didn't spit them back out.
Also something interesting, he takes leaves in preference to a millet spray now.
That is great news. In Australia the Wild budgerigar's don't eat pellets they eat grass seeds...I have a container of seed and in a separate container I have pellets and I let him choose what he wants to eat... My budgie doesn't have the fatty seeds.. I give him a good seed mix that I mix up myself a breeder told me about it....Indi loves his seed the best doesn't eat pellets very much....
