    Hi Caitlyn, When you get your baby bird, he should be around
    8 weeks old and already weaned. If they tell you that he's
    on 2 feeings a day, he should be about 6 weeks old and they
    shouldn't have sold him to you if they knew you weren't (no
    offense but) bird smart. Usually if someone tells you that
    they are still on 2 feedings a day, they know/sense that you
    can do the feedings and wean the bird. All of my birds have
    weaned themselves by 8 weeks old. Give him some medium
    hookbill food, maybe some millet and try him on some fresh
    fruits & veggies. Connie
