Plum and Pomegranate Month on November, 2017: what can you feed a month and half old cockatiel?

November, 2017 is Plum and Pomegranate Month 2017. Caramelized Plum and Quinoa Salad with Pomegranate Dressing ... to wait a few more months.

what can you feed a month and half old cockatiel?

Give him time to settle in first. He needs to get used to his cage, his new home, and everything that will hopefully surround him for the rest of his life. This should take only a few days. Keep him in a quiet room away from any other animals.

Fruits:

Apples

Pears

Peaches

Bananas

Berries

Kiwi

Pomegranate

Grapes

Before feeding your parakeets any fruits or vegetables, clean well! Most store bought fruits/veggies have pesticides on them which can prove to be lethal to your bird.

Veggies:

Carrots

Sweet Potatoes

Broccoli

Cauliflower

Bell Peppers

Beets

Legumes

Frozen Mixed Vegetables

Kale

Zucchini (and other squash)

Asparagus

Bean or Alfalfa Sprouts

Spinach

Brussels Sprouts

Again, make sure you clean well! Pesticides are used on store-bought vegetables and plants and can kill your bird.

Also, try cutting up the veggies or fruits into dices, long slices, or thin little strips. You can feed apple whole as long as you skin it. My birds love to shred apple! You can also feed them *plain* apple sauce! Also, make sure you remove the roots, pits, and seeds of the food you give them.

Foods You Should NEVER Feed:

Chocolate

Avocado

Sugary Foods

Salty Foods

Greasy Foods

High Fat Content Foods

Caffeine

Soda

Alcohol

Pits/Seeds/Roots of Fruits/Veggies

Candy

Rhubarb

Here is another list with more options:

Greens: Kale, Bok choy, spinach, chard, mustard greens, radish, carrot tops, beet tops, dandelion greens (make sure they haven't been sprayed or collected near a roadway) and just about any other leafy green veggie.

Veggies: Carrots, peas, zucchini, corn, squash, radishes, bell pepper, broccoli, green beans, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, chili peppers.

Grains: Steamed rice (white, brown, wild) cooked pasta, whole wheat and multi-grain bread, popcorn (no butter), bran muffins, polenta, grits, cous cous, sprouted seeds and grains (quinoa, amaranth, millet, teff, kamut, spelt), oatmeal, all natural cereal.

Proteins: Raw sunflower seed (small amounts), chicken, eggs, fish, small amounts of hard cheese such as Jack and cheddar, tofu, cooked beans (lentil, kidney, black, garbanzo, navy, white).

Fruit: Apples (seeds removed), peaches, bananas, melons, mango, pomegranate, oranges, papaya, strawberries, plums, pears, berries, nectarines, cherries. (Please remove all pits from fruit.)

5 Month Old Bearded Dragon Question?

5 Month Old Bearded Dragon Question?

I have always fed mine as many as they could eat twice a day for about 10 minutes until they were a year old so 15 is not much at all. He needs to eat and also get used to veggies and greens. Why don't you try putting the salad mixture in in the am and hold off on the crickets until say even noon and then again around 5 pm. Soemtimes you have to use tough love to get them to eat the veggies but he has got to get used to them as after a yr old his diet should be 80% greens and veggies. I am going to give you my list of foods to see if he will eat some of these. Try peas as most of them love them. Just put some in on top of the greens and see.

I got a 3 month old lovebird yesterday?

I got a 3 month old lovebird yesterday?

You'll want to give your bird a day or two settle, and then start on training as soon as possible. The earlier you start, the less work you will have training your Lovebird! You'll want to start simple, make sure you have your hands in the cage DAILY. Whether it's changing toys, food, water, pads, it will all make your bird used to having your hands in the cage... and lower the chances of him being cage aggressive. Once he is comfortable with that, try feeding him millet! Start out by feeding him from the entire stem, then everyday lessen and lessen it. Soon you'll having him take millet from your fingers. Once you have him doing this, you can start placing the millet on your lap and getting him comfortable with being on you. You can then start working on step up, and other commands!

Here are a list of approved treats! Make sure he has a pellet that is fed to him around the clock, and use these as supplements.

Greens: Kale, Bok choy, spinach, chard, mustard greens, radish, carrot tops, beet tops, dandelion greens (make sure they haven't been sprayed or collected near a roadway) and just about any other leafy green veggie.

Veggies: Carrots, peas, zucchini, corn, squash, radishes, bell pepper, broccoli, green beans, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, chili peppers.

Grains: Steamed rice (white, brown, wild) cooked pasta, whole wheat and multi-grain bread, popcorn (no butter), bran muffins, polenta, grits, cous cous, sprouted seeds and grains (quinoa, amaranth, millet, teff, kamut, spelt), oatmeal, all natural cereal.

Proteins: Raw sunflower seed (small amounts), chicken, eggs, fish, small amounts of hard cheese such as Jack and cheddar, tofu, cooked beans (lentil, kidney, black, garbonzo, navy, white).

Fruit: Apples (seeds removed), peaches, bananas, melons, mango, pomegranate, oranges, papaya, strawberries, plums, pears, berries, nectarines, cherries. (Please remove all pits from fruit.)

Please don't feed your birds salty foods, processed sugar, avocado, rhubarb, alcohol, greasy foods, caffeine, tomato leaves & stems, eggplant leaves, dried beans (always cook or fully sprout first), chocolate, apple seeds, fruit pits, tobacco. Feed onions or garlic in very small amounts only.
