    As ironic as it is, my cockatiel Alex LOVES chicken! I'm talking she goes nuts over a drumstick. In my book it says that they are supposed to eat meat. SO I'm assuming chicken is ok. I give her cooked chicken though and sometimes some med-rare steak.

    And a question. She refuses to eat friuts and veggies unless you chew it up for her. I know that sounds nasty, but why is she like that?
    And is it ok for her to eat cheeto's? Thats her favorite snack other than chicken.

    Here's a couple of photos of her. She was riding our bottle baby goat!

    Hi sma yeah its fine her eating meat aslong as its not in large amounts one of mine loves beef lol

    As for the fruit and veg instead of chewing it up you could try pulping it up and placing that in her dish see how she goes with that.
    Females love soft foods as thats what they would eat if they had chicks to raise.

    Cheetos are ok too as they have calcium in them also aslong as not given in large amounts.
    She sounds like a right character lol
    I could not see the pics it asked me to sign in.

    I've tried pulping it and puttin it in a bowl, she looks at me like "uh, excuse me....you've got to feed ti to me!" She loves to take it off the end of your tounge.....nasty!!! But she'll bite at your lip till ya give her something!
