Need HELP with my new parrotlet

Also-The only food she likes other than seed so far is butternut squash, tomatoes, egg, & bread crusts.....Are these all OK ? Does not like any dried friuts or banana, apples, etc.
Thank you ! Faith

If she hides behind your neck, or scrambles down your back, lean backwards so that she has to climb forward in an easier to reach spot.
The food sounds good. Parrots aren't normally big on fruit minus of course lories, as most people find it easier to get their birds to eat veggies than fruit. You might try various leafy green veggies (carrot tops, broccoli, various types of lettuce, parsley, etc), as well as other red and yellow veggies (such as sweet potatoes, bell peppers, or regular red peppers, corn, carrot, etc) saying as how she enjoys butternut squash and tomatoes.
Try making it a reward to go back to the cage, and have a little treat in there for when she goes back in, and only then. Do not give her this treat anywhere else. You might also want to play with some of the toys and show her how fun they are!
