$299.00,Petsmart, Greenbriar.

10/02 - Purchased it tonite, at the age of 7 months.

10/03-7am - saw him playing with his toy for few minutes, he seems very shy and nervous, has yet to eat, basically stays on just the top perch.

12noon - he has let out a few vocals,nothing really loud, just a few minor screams.

3pm - still hasnt eaten, offered him a piece of apple, he took alot of nibbles, offered a piece of banana, he didnt like it, wiped his beak off on the perch, put a piece of apple in his food dish in a attempt to lure him down to it, set up my camera on TimeLapse at 15 minutes apart.

10/04 - amazingly, he stayed right where he was when I left. up in the back, toward the top. I again offered him a piece of apple, he ate some, didnt care for the peanut butter I put on it, I held a spray of Millet Spray at his mouth, he ate alot of it, so I took a clothes pin and put it at the top of the cage, where he has been eating it for the last 1/2 hour, I feel better now that he is at least eating something.
It was easier to copy from diary, but I just bought this bird, and it seems he wont eat parrot food, what to do????
