My lovedird is Not eating the thulasi leaf

I used to give to my lovebirds thulasi leaf. so they be healthy But when I baught new set of lovebirds they are not eating the thulasi ,??? Why are they not eating??? And I caught one of the bird and started to give but it is trying to bite me .. instead of eating it


Hi Akshay,

I am not familiar with this plant.  Birds have different tastes and what one bird eats may not appeal to another. There is no one food they need to be healthy. They should be eating a nutritionally balanced diet like pellets or our foraging diets, veggies, fruits and dark leafy greens. You should never try to force feed anything to a bird. Offer different foods and if they don’t eat it, try again. Some birds need more time than others to get used to new foods.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
