    Has the bird eaten??
    It should be on a parakeet mix, or finch mix. I use finch mix
    because my birds love the golden seed and the long canary
    seeds, and they usually will eat millet last and the black
    seed last. Yes fruits andveggies should be fed to your baby.
    You baby either sound very young, or is molting, or just got
    past the weaning stage. Did th epet store tell you you needed
    to handfeed, or was it obvious. I am not sure unless i take a
    peak at the bird, good luck
