    Weaning ?

    Hi everyone.

    I have a 7 week old cockatiel which is still reliant on two meals per day of manufactured baby food.

    She has no interest in seed, fruit or vegetables and will screech all day until she receives her baby food.

    I have tried feeding her seed etc by hand but she has no interest. She is hand reared and totally tame.

    Can anyone help me with any suggestions they may have as to how I can start to get her eating seed and less reliant on her baby food ?

    TIA

    I don't know that there are that many breeders who read or post here...your best bets would be to check out the following boards; there are very experienced breeders(some have been breeding cockatiels 25 years or longer) there.

    chats.upatsix.com/chats.p...=cockatiel

    www.birdsnways2.com/chats...cschat.cgi

    Please note, on the second one registration ISN'T required, but they will delete your posts if you don't post with a valid email address.
