As most Grey owners know, any new foods are usually viewed with great suspicion when they are first offered. Then you are eyeballed with great suspicion in case you're trying to give them something disgusting. Then the new item is eyeballed again. Then maybe after 20 minutes, the new food item will be licked. The after an undetermined amount of time, the new food item will either be eaten or flung into space. rolleyes.gif

Today, I gave Solly a dandelion. It's the first time he's ever had one so I was really surprised when he grabbed it out of my hand before I had chance to say a word!

I now realise that he only wanted to play "She loves me, she loves me not" with the petals lol.gif

Ohhh a flower? for me?

This end is quite boring

Solly is so handsome and looks so pleased with his dandelion!

Georgie cockatiel is the same with anything new in his cage smile.gif It usually involves an hour or so of climbing around the cage, getting increasingly closer to and eyeballing 'the new thing' lol.gif

Have you ever tried Solly with pieces of willow? Georgie and Pearl love stripping the leaves and bark off that winks.gif

Ah, glad to hear that. My brother's sulphur crested cockatoo, Sparky, is like this and it always concerned me. Even if they only put a new "toy" in her cage, she looks petrified for hours, huddling in the far corner of her cage and staring at the "intruder". She does eventually get brave and go to investigate but it can take literally hours. I always thought this was a bit odd but, from this thread, it would appear not. smile.gif

Haven't tried him with willow yet but he has had crab apple branches and (after the usual eyeballing) loved stripping the bark off them lol.gif

Solly is funny with toys too, he prefers toys made of coloured blocks of wood to plain wood but even then it takes him a few days of me playing with a new toy outside his cage with him before he'll accept it into his cage rolleyes.gif wub.gif
