How do you teach your bird too eat more variety of fruits and seeds? Answered

i already tried a few methods already such as mixing it with his normal food and using it on it's own but they just don't eat it so has anyone got a solution?

Why is it important that your bird eats more variety? If you are feeding him/her a pre-made mix just pick out what he/she normally eats and set it aside in another container. Your bird will eat what is placed before him and when he does you can reward him with some of the food you set aside.

Solution: hunger.

After a month of no other food, I imagine you would be willing to eat some pretty unusual things. Likewise, after a few weeks without other food, even your picky eater bird is going to try some of the new food.

It is not going to starve to death while food is available. Of course, this assumes that the food you are offering is nutritious and not poisonous to your bird.
