    You dont' know me, but I have a high tolerance for the ignornat
    and uninformed. So spare me the cavalier attitude about having
    your feelings hurt.
    Birdmart gets postings such as yours that send up red flags by
    the wording they contain. Usually, they are from thrill seekers
    who are trying to stir up controversy with bizarre subject matter
    such as what you posted.
    If you truly have a budgie that is still in down and only has
    head, wing and tail feathers, that bird is NOT weaned. A
    reputable breeder or store would never have allowed that bird to
    be sold to you or anyone else.
    I don't care how you "feel" or if you think I was rude.
    The poor bird should still be hand fed with hand feeding formula.
    Period. Do what's right for the bird.
