    Hi everyone, I am new here. I have a 20 week old cockatiel, he is very social and active and seems to have hit all of his "benchmarks", only problem is he does not show any signs of weaning off his formula.

    Dangers of Abundance Weaning?

    This is no doubt going to be a controversial topic, but I’d like to see what you all think. I was once a big supporter of the ‘don’t stop hand feeding until the bird rejects formula’ mindset, but I’m near changing my mind to an extent. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with having a bird...
