Multiple Bird Recue questions
by C F
I am writing in hopes to get some help with my 4 birds. I have a 14 year old eclectus (who is a plucker and has a naked chest and under his wings) and a 15 and 12 year old moluccan cockatoos and a 7 year old blue and gold macaw.
I am struggling to find a food and treats that they will all eat and will do well on. All of my birds are recues (the ecletus is still considered a "foster bird" as I have not finalized his adoption yet) and they all came with different eating habits. None of the habits were good.
I have tried Zupreem pellets for the birds and they merely pick them up and throw them on the floor. (The dogs don't mind, I guess.) But it is getting costly to continue to buy foods they won't eat. The macaw came to me as a cheap seed junkie. It has taken me a long time to get her to even try the fresh food I offer the flock. The cockatoos taste items but never seems to really eat it.
Do you have any suggestions that I can try?
