African Grey 7 weeks old


Hi i have 7 weeks old African grey bought it two weeks ago was hand feeding but since today it stop taking its food by syringe and shaking its head and throwing out its formula can u please help in this regard .
Thanks in advance


Answer:

Hi,

He may be losing interest in the formula. He is ready to start weaning. You should be offering him solid foods like pellets, warm soft food like cooked brown rice with chopped veggies, fruit and fresh water. You can even mix some formula where it is thicker so he can eat it from a dish. If he is actually throwing up, then you need to take him to an avian vet.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
