- Real Name
So I just got a new baby peach-faced lovebird bird. He's 8 weeks old and I've never had a bird this young before. I was reassured by the breeder that he was fully weaned but I've noticed that he shows no interest in eating from his food bowl in his cage. He'll sit on my shoulder and eat seed that I feed him (no interest in pellets) but he doesn't eat by himself at all. He seems to want to be close to me as much as possible. Is this normal for babies? I'm just worried if I baby him too much he won't learn to eat on his own. But on the flip side I obviously don't want him to starve lol. He hasn't been with me very long yet so he is still adjusting to his new home as well. So anyway, I'd love to hear advice from people who are familiar with baby lovebirds.
