    how many ML should a 7 week old lovebird eat?

    I'm feeding him once a day cause the rest of the day he eats pretty well on his own (pellets but no fruit or veggies yet. I guess he doesn't trust me enough yet). He eats between 2-4 ml. Is that enough?

    Is he holding his weight, and/or gaining some each day? Personally, I would mix some seeds with those pellets and take the mix down to minimum pellets and plenty of seeds, because a baby bird as young as he is, in my view, cannot handle just pellets as his diet. Even if you are feeding the baby food, I feel that you need to add seeds. I would suggest you find the thread that Clive has recently posted about pellets so you can learn more about them. Personally, I will not feed them. I think there has been some discussion about feeding him, and if it were me I would continue feeding the baby food once a day for a few more weeks longer. In my view he needs the baby food. He still has some time to go before he is 12 weeks old.

    These are strictly my own thoughts and opinions.

    Has a great appetite. Eats plenty of pellets and millet.
    I've given fruits and veggies but still won't go near them.
    After feeding him today he weighed 42g...he ate 3ml of formula.
