You are correct that your bird is receiving adequate hydration from
the hand feeding formula.
While you are weaning the bird, he will eventually try water along
with the new foods he's trying. Birds are smart. They know what
water is and when they feel they need it. Offer it but don't worry
if he's not taking it and you are still hand feeding.
