    Rehomed birds of any age can really give us a fit, especially
    if we don't have much information about their past, their
    likes, dislikes, behaviors, etc. I would not discount
    regression, just because of age. I know of birds older than
    that, who will still, on occasion, beg for a hand feeding.
    It's really not a bad thing to offer it to them. It can be a
    great source of comfort to them and it's really handy if you
    ever have to medicate a reluctant bird. You can usually slip
    it right into a hand feeding. Just the fact that he is
    rehomed, makes him feel insecure and I'm sure he has memory
    of how comforting a hand feeding can be. That may be his way
    of asking for that comfort. If it was me, I'd for sure,
    offer him some hand feedings. It doesn't necessarily have to
    be baby bird forumula. It can be anything you know he
    likes. Like some mashed up, warm veggies that he already
    likes, or oatmeal or anything similar. I think it's worth a
    try.
