I purchased a 3-month-old Quaker parrot, suspecting it was a female. I was told she was hand-fed. I’ve had her for over a month now. But she is petrified of hands.
I’ve been placing my hand (palm down) to hold a treat near her cage door, she usually takes it.
My severe macaw is losing all its feathers.
The vet says I should switch her to 80% pellet food.
However, I am not convinced. I don’t think they eat pellets in the wild.
Do you think this is an acceptable alternative?

Is there ever a chance my Quaker Parrot Blu will warm up to my other birds?
He just turned 1, I’ve had him since he was a baby.
We got Winnie the Cockatiel as a baby about 6 months after Blu and just a few weeks ago Chip the parakeet joined our flock.
Blu isn’t as aggressive w/Winnie at this point, but he used to stalk her.
He loved pulling a feather or biting her toes and as a result, Winnie is scared of Blu and little baby Chip.
