    Is all this food okay for my lovebird then? I'm happy to try any new food as it also equals to new stimulation for her :emoji_hearts:.

    Yes it all ok for your love bird but the big question is will your love bird like it. Mine love a bit of lettuce or apple and grapes but not much more although I can get away with giving grass that is seeding but the female then places in her feathers on her back, and takes it to her box. the male will chew it more.

    Lettuce does not have much nutritional value, better with cabbage leaf, kale or sprouts, also carrot tops and dandelion leaves (well once the frosts have gone, they’re bitter until then)

    Gosh I'm finding everything a pain.
    Why are birds soo stubborn, so shes not liking anything i give her, i got some treatment from northern parrots to help also but she doesn't like being sprayed... :emoji_weary:
    Ive ordered some cheese cloth so i can make a jar thing to germinate the seeds.
    Shes not as bold, like shes got more little feather shoots then shes had in ages but I'm not gonna hold my breath.
    Like even when shes out with me she attacks herself, I'm gonna book her in the vets when I'm off for Easter as I dont have time to drive her when i wanna take her atm.
    I really wanna get her eating good things just for her own good!
    Do you think it would be mean if i took her food out at night and give some fresh veg in morning where her seed would normally be and see if it pushes her into trying it? Then wait then give her seed back??

    Thank you all by the way for being so
    helpful and supportive! So glad I joined here :emoji_slight_smile:.
