I have my cockatiel since August. She (or he) is not tamed yet, but she eats from my hand. She hisses at me at the beginning, but then she starts eating from my hand, but only millet. I can see a progress but I can't touch her yet. The problem is she doesn't want to eat fruit and vegetables. I think I tried everything. I put them in her "bowl" and covered them with seeds, I gave them to her raw, cooked, on different ways, but she just hates them and since she is not tamed yet, she doesn't trust me that much and I can't encourage her to eat fruit and vegetables. I seriously don't know what to do... Do you have any tips or something? (Sorry if I made any mistakes, I am learning English)

I chop them up really small and hand feed them to my girl. I will even pretend to eat them and she gets excited and starts nibbling on them cause she gets excited about anything im eating. you can also try cutting broccoli florets, the very top, and sprinkling that in with some seed cause they look very much like seeds. thats my girls favorite way to eat broccoli.
