How To Introduce New Foods?

I bought my cockatiel from a pet shop I wasn't going to at first but I fell in love with one that they had there.I was just wondering how to get him/her to eat other foods .They had her/him on just seeds when I visited:)wacko:).I put pellets in the cage and seeds and a bowl with both and he/she is only picking out seeds!

Oh and the seeds where just plain budgie seeds.

If your cockatiel is only use to eating seeds and budgies seeds at that :eek: it might take some time to get him/her use to other foods, patience is the key and offereing them daily even if there not eaten eventually s/he will try them and you will be able to see which ones s/he likes best, I offer a small amount of seeds daily and then have pellets in the cage when there done there seeds they move on to the pellets it took some time for some of them to come around but eventually they tried them and found out they liked them, have you tried offering other foods? carrots, corn and parsley are big favourites in my house.
