Good morning, I have a ~12 week old Alexandrine I raised (experienced), he is fledging, and has been flying for about a week now. Until a few days ago, he was taking formula 1-2 times a day, and eating sprouts, pellets, and fruits/vegetables on his own. Over the weekend, he's refusing his formula to the point of flying away as I'm preparing it, which I know is normal, but I can't seem to get him to eat much else. Before he was eating well on his own, but over the weekend, to now, he's turning away from all food. I have a call into my vet (he's hard to reach), but I don't think there is anything wrong with my bird, he's otherwise is great shape! Yesterday he had a few bites of okra and corn, and maybe a sprout or two, but not what I feel he should have been eating. I know that when they fledge they cut out calories for a few days, but this is extreme (I think). I am able to get him to take a few cc's of formula each day, but he's not happy about it, it's enough to keep his poops 'normal', but even those aren't what they were a few days ago. Should I be worried or will this pass? I keep telling myself as long as he's acting normal and pooping, this too shall pass, but I needed affirmation. This brings me to my next question (I am afraid to ask), should I clip him? All he wants to do is fly around the house, and I can't keep him one spot long enough for him to even entertain food. I have mixed feelings about clipping, as I'm sure a lot of bird owners do, but in this case, he's so ADD I feel I'd be doing him (and myself) a favor by grounding him. idk- any insight is appreciated.
