Hi everyone!
Today something odd happened,my 4 week old cockatiel voluntarily ate a big chunk of banana!
I’ve weaned my fair share of cockatiels to know that they normally start from 6-8 weeks.
I ignored the incident and continued with formula as usual.
Now I’m kind of confused. Should I encourage him weaning that early? What do you guys think?

Offer them all sorts of food. Mash it...veggies, fruit, etc... the ole cheerios...they love to play with them...
Millet...They will play with it...maybe swallow some but get the taste for these things...Keep up the weighing & the regular feedings as its still too young to even think of weaning...
