Any tips to get my Gouldian Finches to eat other foods apart from dry seed? My zebra finches are little pigs and they will eat anything, but the Gouldians won't even try anything new. All my finches get greens, home make egg food (from smashed up boiled egg with shell, green veg and chick crumble). They also have grit, oyster shell, egg shells, cuttlebone, charcoal. I add vitamins to the drinking water several times a week also. They are housed outdoors in a sunny aviary. I offer all this to the Gouldians, but they only eat the seed! They do not even seem to be eating the grit or cuttlebone. They are rearing a batch of chicks at the moment and I am worried they are not getting good nutrition. The male finch in particular is loosing feathers under his chin and around his neck. Anyone know what there birds will like to eat or tips to get them to try the new foods?
