    I see what you mean GL. It would be nice if everyone could share advice
    and opinions without the tension. I am always careful of hot foods on
    the instruction of avian vet. Jimbob is not overly fond of warm food.
    Jimbob was very sick a year ago and almost died. As far as we could
    figure he may have fallen and caused hematoma to liver. He also suffered
    a severe neurological adverse reation to antibiotics. Based on that then
    maybe he has just formed an aversion to different foods. Not sure. He
    already sits with us at table but I have not tried his own dish or lots
    of excitement.These things are definately worth a try. Thanks and I will
    keep you all posted!
