Cockatiels need more then just seeds. A seed diet only lacks the vitamen A that a healthy bird needs.. You want to make sure that you cockatiel has plenty of fresh fruit and vegatable available at all times. If they have been eating a seed diet and you would like to switch them over but they don't want the fresh food all you have to do is let them go 24 hours with out food. After that time period they will eat the fresh food. This will not hurt them and in the long run they will be healthier.
Treats for your tiels.
My cockatiels really enjoy a bowl of unsalted and unbuttered popcorn. Cockatiels can eat just about anything. Some of the more acceptable foods are: broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, apple, pear, peach, pinapple, quava, mango, fresh corn and cottage cheese. The things you want to stay away from are: avocodo, chocolate, ice cream, cake, cookies and high fat seeds.
