So do I feed it to her or let her feed herself?My bird was refusing all meals from the breeder for a while before I brought him home because he was a big boy and eating on his own..... he begged for baby food the first night at my house and was given it any time he wanted it. He was always so happy and content after his warm mushy pellets- I actually grind them to powder them up and I still give him a warm bowl of wet pellet paste every night which he loves most nights.
You don’t have to weigh the food unless you want to know how much she eats, but with the amount that is spilled it’s really hard to tell. Cockatiels don’t usually over eat, so I would just make sure she is eating and has access to food all day. @iamwhoiam has some good suggestions for enticing her to eat.I will, I will find weight guidelines for her and monitor it. Should I be weighing the food too?
