Hello, Give him some time. You just received him he is
getting used to his suroundings and you...But when it comes
to fruits and vegtables you can try any that is low in
iron.He might not like all but will find his
favorites..Instead of Tufu i give tuna in water and chicken
breast in water and mix all of my fruits and vegtables..Some
people would disagree with me but frozen fruits and vegtables
has no vitamins in them.Fresh is better.I was also told by a
Mynah breeder who bred for years and years that pet mynahs
don't need mealworms only breeder mynahs.But in my oppinion
your mynah will not get sick.If he is hungry he will eat.
This is a great board but you can also learn alot of
information on mynahbird.com That is a pure mynah forum.
people go up there everyday and post questions and awnseres.
Good Luck Melissa
