Another Update ..... This morning JoJo had his first taste of CHOP for breakfast, and he is loving this stuff bigtime. I'm delighted, as he will be getting it on a regular basis.

I haven't been here lately, Patrick, so I missed this whole conversation but you got the right advice: they do need to be ON us, especially when they are babies and juveniles (as yours is). And, YAAYYY on the chop!!! The more produce they eat (both in quantity AND variety), the healthier he will be and a healthy parrot is a happy parrot! :thumbsup:

Well, so far, I have discovered which vegetables JoJo likes and which ones he does not like ......
He likes corn A lot! He likes Red Pepper a lot too, he loves Green beans, and seems to enjoy Peas
as well. He likes his fruit too....Apples and Pears and Grapes in particular, but I limit the amount
of fruit and how often he gets it, as it does give him loose droppings. I like to watch him eat so I
can see what he likes and doesn't like. He likes his fruit too .... Apples, Pears and Grapes, but I

He does get his "Out-of-Cage" time a few times each day. He enjoys sitting on my shoulder.
His tabletop perch has arrived and that is great, because he can be out on his perch on the desk
while I'm on the computer. So far things are going well . . . I'm enjoy watching him explore and grow and bond with me.

Sounds like everything is going great, Patrick! Try blueberries, blackberries and pomegranate seeds (all extremely nutritious and loved by every single parrot I have).
