Serve on the bottom of the bird cage as an inexpensive but healthy addition to his or her regular seed and or pellet diet.
 
Remember, peanuts and sunflowers are what french-fries are to us, delicious but fatty. Thus as we teach children to eat healthy, we must teach our birds.
Birds in the wild are scavengers.
 
Our Senegal Parrot Peaches eats anything we eat (Chocolate, caffeine and avocados are unhealthy for birds). He doesn’t care if he’s had it before and didn’t like it. If we’re eating it, he chirp-wants-chirp-some-chirp.

In captivity, they are under different conditions and eating different foods and we expect them to select the best combination immediately.
