    WE mix thawed frozen peas and corn into a bright colored pellet
    mix for weaning. I also cook grains and beans for all my birds
    so babies get that too. Try slice of apples, oranges and grape
    halves. He'll start eating when he's ready. How old is he? I
    have baby suns about 5 weeks old now and that is way too early.
