Sure :!:

A good well-balanced diet is readily accepted by the Indian Ringneck. Lots of fresh vegetables and fruits are enjoyed daily.

Dandelion greens, spinach, chard, romaine lettuce and broccoli are all good sources of vitamins and minerals.

Apples, oranges, grapes, peaches, pears, pomegranates, are just a few of the many fruits the ringneck will enjoy.

Zucchini, peas, green beans, yam, carrot and corn on the cob are just a few of the many nutritious vegetables that should be fed.

Pasta, rice and bean mixes add good protein and carbohydrate sources.

The use of one or more pelleted diet will help assure the intake of needed vitamins and minerals. Many of the commercial parrot and cockatiel mixes contain a nice mixture of seeds that the birds will relish.

Peanuts and almonds are known to be favorite treats. They like diversity in what they eat. Change their choices daily for variety.

i gave peanut some polmegranite for the first time yesterday, and he LOVED it! i had been giving him orange pieces in his treat dish, despite the fact that he screams at them and throws them out of the bowl, but yesterday he actually started eating them after weeks of screaming at them. im so proud that he decided to take a bite of them!
