Post: 13 week old Cockatiel won't wean
Posted by Evelyn on 8/18/07
How do I get a baby to start eating on his own? He is the
first day 1 chick I've raised. I've had him with
a "weaning buddy" since he was 5 weeks old, but he still
won't feed himself. He has been with other younger birds
that feed themselves, but he won't catch on.
Every time I try to reduce a feeding, he looses weight
drasticly. I'm afraid I'm gong to loose him if he doesn't
learn how to eat! He "nibbles" at any food I put in front
of him, but looses interest in about 5 seconds. I'm at my
wits end and would appreciate any suggestions!
