Question by ‡ Dana ‡: When can my hand fed baby parakeet start eating seeds?
I have a very young parakeet whom was badly mutilated by another parakeet. I managed to save him (though I am unsure how he survived). I have been feeding him formula for birds but he requires feedings every two hours. I am anxious for when he can eat on his own but i have no idea on how long that is going to take and I don’t want to push him until he is ready.
He is approximately 2 weeks old.
Answer by Jack
Since the bird is only two weeks old, you might have another two weeks or so until you can start trying to geed him millet. You want to do the transfer slow so he gets used to it. Make sure the bird is eating plenty when you do decide to wean him off of formula.
