My two parakeets wont eat their veggies or fruits ( just like me, i dont eat veggies), they're apparently scared to death when i stick some strips of a carrot, or some broccoli inside, and they are very fresh, and washed! they wont eat it, even if we leave it there for an hour or two

what should we do

it's normal for them to not know what it is for awhile. Put it in the spot where they hang out most of the time. they will be curious and chew on it eventually. if they have a stone or something for chewing on, put the veggie there and see what happens.

they dont have any favorite toy, or anything, they just like hanging at the top perch, and chirping at each other, and preening each other, and flexing their wings, and stretching, and walking down their staircase to go get food

well, mix it in with the food, or put it where they are the most.

In an 'hour or two' I'd be very surprised if your birds ate something new that was introduced to them.

This is obviously something fresh to their diet that hasn't been started when they were young.

It will take time and perseverance.

My precious baby will only eat her broccoli. I just bought her a new huge cage and she is still getting used to it, so eating her fresh fruits and veggies are really not on the top of her list of fun things that she can do... I love my little baby so much and I love this site too... Thank you Lisa and all fellow keet lovers alike!!!!.
