Default Getting Skye to eat veggies once more..

Ever since Skye moved to her big cage last year, she's strangely been disinterested in veggies. I'm not sure if it's because she has a lot of room now and other things to shred, or some other reason. I make sure to include vitamins in her water so she gets what she needs, but I wish I could get her back into veggies. She used to shred carrots to pieces, but now she just takes one nibble and ignores the whole thing, along with celery, parsley, and everything else.

Has anyone ever had a period where their birds just stop liking something? I wonder what I should do. Maybe if I can sprout some seed, she'd get more nutrition from that if I can't get her into the veggies. Her seed is Goldenfeast Australian Blend, and I heard it can sprout since it's pretty fresh and requires refrigeration.

Also, sorry I've been gone for so long! It's nice to post again. :>

UPDATE: All seems well! She went for the carrot today, and started ripping it up! She used to do that, which...I'm not sure if it counts as eating the carrot but at least she's more likely to absorb some nutrients from that than just ignoring it!

Welcome back to the forums!

I can't say I was ever in a situation where my birds stopped eating their veggies due to a change of scenery or change of cages.
Have you tried placing the veggies near your Skye's favourite perching spot?
It's a really good idea to introduce sprouted seeds to your budgie's diet, this can also encourage her to eat other fresh foods.
Good luck!

Yeah, it's pretty weird. It might also be because I fell out of the habit of giving them daily for a little while, and she just stopped liking them because of that...big mistake I guess.

I definitely tried putting them where she sits but she just does the whole takes one nibble and then ignores the rest.

I'll try the seed thing for sure though! She might like it.

Thank you! Budgies sure can be silly and weird. I just gave her a mini rainbow carrot but of course she didn't even bother going over to it...ah well.
