It's great that she's eating pellets already! My tiels like the ZuPreem too. Is she still laying eggs? Excessive laying is a problem more common in cockatiels. Does she have a cuttlebone? If not, you shoud probably get her some. And as far as the clipped wings... Most birds stop jumping off after a little while of realizing their decreased flight abilities. Hope this helps!

I personally don't suggest vitamin drops, like the ones you put in their water, but mineral blocks tend to work well and my birds like them. I'm not an expert on breeding, sadly, so you might want to find someone else.
