Scooter has thus far rejected everything labeled as a treat except millet spray. He does like fruits and veggies, though, so I can use bits of apple as a training treat. He doesn't even like sunflower seeds! I think you'll just have to figure out what your guy likes.

Remember, a treat should only be served as a treat. Whatever you decide on should not be given in his daily food.

Wow that's amazing. My Green Cheeks both go crazy over Sunflower Seeds! and they also love apple.

My Cockatiel loves red millet.
