He’s 5 months. I’ll talk to my vet again about his diet. He loves his strawberries
and cherries that I get him. He has his breakfast and then he’s out of his cage with me then in his cage in the evening for his dinner. I wasn’t going to train him like a dog
btw just to go on a towel. I am not that dumb.


No one accused you of being dumb. We just get so excited when a new "birdy baby" is added to our flock.
We love our birds. We know each other's birds and love them too.

You should never supplement birds with Omega 6, it would create an imbalance and make the bird sick because every grain and seed has omega 6 [pellets are made of seeds and grains] and the thing with omegas is that they need to be in perfect balance or it's worse than giving them nothing [Dr. Harrison -the same Harrison of the pellets- noted in his last avian medicine book that people were getting their birds sick by giving them omega supplements]. As Omega 3 goes, adding flax seed to their soft food is all they need. More is not better with birds.
