i forgot to ask what seed he was on, i could go to the pet shop nearest to me and get a plain kind of cockatiel seed? the one i use has a lovely fruity smell too i love it!...............not eating it that is......................i just love the smell!
i dont think he has seen a toy either, he seems scared of everything still
i have given him a tiny bit of egg food.....hasnt touched it!
also hard boiled egg ..........................didnt touch it
hmmm I would try soaking some bird seed to see if he eats that. do you think that he may be stressed ? if so you could ad some electrolites in hie water. I am starting to lean towards putting him in a hospital cage to keep him warm so you can keep an close eye on him if he does not eat with in the next 24 hours I would take him to an Avian vet for a check up.
he is still in his settling in stage alex, he has done his "im all excited cos im somewhere different" and now everything has calmed down he is feeling a little delicate. I wouldnt worry too much, he will eat when he's hungry and will learn that toys are to play with and not to be scared of quick enough.
i would stay away from the treats for a few days, as given the choice (like children) he will go for them and leave his real dinner. i know you are trying hard to find something he likes eating, but i would stick with just one thing for the mo - i give him 24 hours before he's tucking in but be warned, he may not eat in front of you to start with so try marking the bowl so you know where it was filled to once he is eating you can then offer him other things and find out what the favorites are
he sounds like a very lovable bird. I was just talking to the wife about the bird and she said to me what about our two hmmm ( smart lady ) hehe We have one cockatiel that will not touch cockatiel seed he only eats small seed ( budgie mix ) nothing else no fruit or veggies. the other cockatiel eats tiel mix and just about anything he can get.
