Converting Caique to pellets

(River Falls, WI)

I Have aquired a Black headed Caique (pionites melenocephala). His former owner tried feeding him some healthier pellets,Zupreem,but they are either to old or he hasn't been properly trained to eat them.I want order 1 lb. of your pellets and then supplement them with some fresh and cooked stuff. Do you have any suggestions as to how to convert him? He is about 2 and one half years old.

Hello Dennis,

(I hope you find this post, I accidentally deleted your Email address and can't Email you. :-/

Yes, you can read our Switching Birds to Pellets article. It gives the details on how to help your bird convert to pellets.

We only give pellets in the morning to our birds, when they are the hungriest. Then late in the day, at dinner time, we give them Totally Organics Seeds and some other treats.
