Hi all i have a alexandrian ring neck around 2months old ...
My plan is to feed him 3times a day in his cage as per my schedule .. so morning 8am ,afternoon 1oclock and evening6pm this is my schedule...a bit of training on the Tstand before feeding inside the cage...need to knw what to feed during the 3 times....food easily available for me ....fruits-banana,papaya,watermelon veggies-garbanzo beans,mung beans,red lentil,green and red chilly,boiled rice,
leafs-spinach,lettuce.....how ever, not sure if i soak it in cold water or boild and feed....???? So i normally boil till soft and then feed??how to divide fruits,veggies for 3 meals
Here the situation.........
In the morning my bird starts screaming really really bad for food and never never stops i totally ignore this ...i wait for him to take a break from screaming so i can give him attention and remove the cage covering and give him food,but he sees me near the cage and starts screaming even more...ever time i go to the cage he screams and i know hes hungry.....what should i do about this screaming as he never stops to give me a change to correct the behaviour...even if i ignore him when i go back to the cage he starts again???? Any salutions
So ,While he screaming i prepare his food in his plate fruits or sometimes veggies...as soon as i open the door of the cage he wants to come out....so i let him come out on his Tstand ....i show him his food plate, even eat a bit from it in frount of him ,and try to lure him into the cage to eat but he does not care about the food even thou hungry ,i tried to lure him with treats aswell, still does not want to go inside the cage.
The only way then is to make him step up get ,him near the plate of food in the cage and actually bite the food and feed him the bitten food with a spoon thats the only way he eats....some times he fusses even to eat from my hand ....its so strange ...?? In this way i cannot judge what is his likes to use as treats???
My plan is to teach him a few tricks on the Tstand with treats before fedding....then put his food in a plate and keep it in his cage so he can go eat on his own inside the cage.....but he makes it so difficult...????? Any suggestions...he is like 2months old name romeo....which i may change to PHYSO hehehe
