    At his age he isn's quite full feathered so maybe in a
    couple of weeks. That is about the same time they are no
    longer in the brooder at night and for long afternoon
    naps... I certainly hope this is the case that it is in a
    brooder for those 2 things... He/she won't wean for a very
    long time at about 3 months old BUT they really enjoy a
    night time comfort feeding of formula with syringe just
    about forever. My Lilo is almost 3 years old and has hers 2
    or 3 times a week. PLEASE tell me you are handfeeding.

    He/She will fledge any day now and must be allowed to fly,
    maneuver under doorways and land gracefully before 8
    feathers are clipped on each wing. This takes from 3 to 7
    days to accomplish.
