About feeding

My cocktile bird is not begging to me for food but i forced to give food to him . Is it correct or not. my bird age was:3 weaks please give me a solution


Hi Mokesh,

If the chick isn’t begging, it is probably ill and needs to be taken to an Avian Vet as soon as possible. It is not good to force feed it because the chick could aspirate  – get food in its lungs.

Take care,
