This is kind of old news, but about a month ago, my vet told me to force wean. Dexter is six months, and at the time, was being hand fed every other day. He ate enough adult food, and it seemed Dexter was only begging for the attention. The vet told me not to hand feed him anymore, even when he begged. After a month, he still begs every other day or so. I haven't hand fed him since the vet told me to stop. He is much less persistent now, only begging for 15 seconds before returning to his play. He started trying to beg to other people (I'm the only person besides the breeder who ever hand fed him). His weight is fine. My bird vet is one of the top avian vets in the country. she was concerned that dex would soon see the handfeeding as a breeding behavior. He seems none the worse for wear psychologically. What do you guys think of this?
