Converting your bird to a pelleted diet sometimes takes persistence and patience, but the pay-off is great: better nutrition and longer life for your bird, less mess and clean-up for you.
When converting your bird to any new food, you must observe the birds carefully. Their droppings should stay about the same number and not be black. Black droppings mean the bird is not eating. Either weigh your bird or feel its breast to check for weight loss. If the bird loses 10% of its body weight, return to its regular diet and try again in two weeks.
