Default My budgie won't eat carrots anymore

As the title says my male budgie jack won't touch carrots anymore i don't think that he has been influenced by the new female budgie as his last partner flew away she was the one who likes the most of carrots even if she was older than jack...the new female that i named jill is still doubtful and bit frightened to me but she is starting to open up (took a while to get used to me specially to my face)...any suggestions?...i really feel like i'm back to zero again

Even if your Jack isn't currently eating carrots that doesn't mean he will never do so. He knows what carrots are and what they taste like and he will eat them when he wants to. When offering fresh foods you can also mix bits of carrot with Jack's favourite leafy green.
Jill will eventually follow suit and start eating her veggies too.

As for earning Jill's trust in you, it's important to continue to spend daily quality time with her, observe her behaviour when you interact more closely with her and depending on the response given by Jill, from watching her body language, you will be able to decide whether she is ready for the next step in training or not.
For the detailed information, be sure to check the stickies at the top of the Taming and Bonding section's main page.

I can't have a real quality time with them both because due to my work, i spend at least 7hours outside my house. but since jack is male he is bit flirty by nature and tries to interact with my nose and mouth when i come near thier cage...the only time i can spend with them is about half hour every morning when i alsp offer veggies. I decided it is always the best time to offer since they are hungry in morning

Cloud also stopped eating his carrots, so I started chopping them and mixing it with other veggies he likes and he eats the carrots when they are chopped and mix with other veggies. Hope this helps

That's interesting. Mine apparently have boycotted broccoli. I wonder why they do that. I've always fed veggies just through the cage bars.. they haven't taken to chopped up in a dish. Maybe I'll start trying that again. I can never quite stay one step ahead of these little guys!

It also seems a little strange...sometimes i get discouraged but i still left the carrots there...with broccoli they don't mind it a t all since it is like a millet spray to them...i. Your case i think its better to leave it until they get used. Im still not giving up with the carrots though, im still offering it to them

There are many different ways to offer vegetables.
Sometimes when a budgie doesn't want to eat them when they are offered one way, they will accept them when offered in a different manner.

Please take the time to carefully read the stickies at the top of the Diet and Nutrition section of the forum for tips.

Best wishes!
