I have an Orange Winged Amazon named Papaguayo. He (Assuming here) will only really eat sunflower seeds beyond other nuts and human food he is given. I have bought the food mixes with more than just sunflower seeds, but he won't eat them. Is there a way to get him to be more willing to everything in the dish? Do I need to remove the sunflower seeds or lessen their number? He talks some, but mostly makes noises and enjoys watching tv shows like Star Trek ones, M.A.S.H., and other material. Likes the radio and showers.

    A nutritionally balanced diet is very important for your bird, not only for its health and longevity, but also for its attitude and behavior. Parrot Cuisine, Food Facts Debunking the Fluff gives an excellent overview of the best diet to offer. Still, it's difficult to change a birds diet, but it's not impossible! It takes time, patience and a few tricks can help. A great article provided by Students With Birds that has some good methods you can try is Tips for Getting Your Parrot to Eat Vegetables or Unfamiliar Foods.

    A sunflower junkie is eventually unhealthy. Parrots are a bit like children, they eat their favourite bits and leave the rest and you can't explain to a bird as you can to a child.Try Harrisons organic pelleted food side by side with his usual and gradually put less seed out so he has to eat the Harrisons

    I also have a Orange wing, "Sara", is a sunflower seed junkie. I bought a bag that sunflower seeds was not listed as one of the main ingredients. And I also bought a bag that had safflower seeds instead of sunflower. I mixed half and half in bowl. After that was gone, I continued buying the safflower seeds and she had no issues.

    Howdy.I own 3 Orange Winged Amazon's & all have been abused either sexually & physically. These birds do have a black ring around the outside of their eye & the inner part of their eye is red. Their very demanding birds & require A LOT of attention especially from you. If your watching TV, take your bird into that room w/you & allow them to just be close & be w/in eyeshot of you as they crave us! Remember these birds are either from Mexico or Africa (it depends on their size & what their leg bands says as a lot of these guys were taken from their Mom just as they hatched from the egg & they remember the abuse they endured from their kidnappers as they treat them horrible so it's not asking much to keep your FeatherBaby in the same room as you) & your all they got. This is also why he's screaming to do stepup as he wants to be w/you so if your doing laundry, I take my birds even in the laundry room & talk & sing to them & get my laundry done & even take them into the kitchen to cook as they eat the food as I'm preparing (fruits/veggies) & they eat breakfast/lunch/dinner when I do as that's a very special bonding moment between us. If your bird wants to take a bite off your plate & it's something safe for them eat, allow it. Your building trust & bonding!!

I have a orange wing. He is over 40 years old. He is amazing. I have had him since he was a baby. He is very demanding. Loves the attention.tells me when to feed him. When to go to bed. He loves people food and baths. I feed him special blend of seeds and people food. They do live a long time.they are a lot of work. Mine plays all day long ringing his cow bell and singing. He does not talk much but mimics sounds. Love to bark like my dogs.just letting people know they are work and live a very long time.

    Sounds like a bit of jealousy there:) It can take a lot of time and patience to get an existing bird to accept a newcomer, especially since your older bird is so closely bonded to you. Don't rush them, I would probably just keep being a good friend to the older bird, but give equal attention to the newcomer, and see how it goes. A rule of thumb is it takes a new bird about a month to get situated in a new environment, but becoming friends may take even longer.

    Thank You, We have a very busy house so I have moved both cages to the quiet side I managed to let them both out yesterday and the older one went for the new baby, but after I stopped them they sat and watched each other for a good ten minutes before they started feeling comfortable enough to take food from my hands, and the cage move today they are a lot quieter and seem more relaxed.

    Hi there.I am extremely happy for the parrots that find wonderful homes after being misstreated. I myself have an Orange wing Amazon named Marley ( 19 years old). His first owner gave him nothing but nuts and sunflower seeds. He smoked like a chimney and found it funny to blow the smoke right in my poor Marley's face. The second owner was someone from the man's family. He once again ate the same diet, left to be chased by the family dog. No toys, and just a sad looking perch inside the cage. The owner was completly terrified of him and poked and beat him with a stick for a year. Marley was completly terrified of humans and wouldnt come out of his cage. He was all plucked, and beak curling. He now has stopped screaming, has a WONDERFUL diet and has went to see a good vet. He ABSOLUTLY loves me and i wouldnt imagine my life without him. He is afraid of others and im trying really hard to work on that. So once again, congrads on all of you who take the time for these wonderful creatures.
