Pasha is 1 years old. He loves hand feed food. He does not give up. I give it once a day because he likes it too. Until when should I give a hand feed? Will there be any harm?He eats these daily.

That is the wrong formula. Macaws need A19, it has a yellow lid. Given he is older than a small chick, I don´t know how important that is.

It is not harmful. Each bird has different needs and the A21 is for the small birds up to the amazons. A19 for the macaws, greys.
It won´t hurt your bird, but the other is better.

My Greenwing stopped handfeeding at 8 months, others may stop a bit younger, or a bit older.
I know of a few that did go over a year.
It will not hurt your bird to continue this for a while, as long as he's eating a healthy diet the rest of the time.
The one feeding you are doing is giving him an emotional and mental boost.

I know nothing about the brand you are feeding, but if you are just giving the one feeding a day, and he has a balanced adult meal the rest of the time, I doubt it will do any harm.

Thanks for the information.
