Need Help! Baby Green Cheek Conure


Strolling the yard

I'm a new bird owner or at least new to taking care of Green Cheeks. I recently bought a new baby green cheek which is only about 8 weeks old, and isn't weaned. The breeder told me I should be fine handfeeding him for another week or two, but he hasn't been eating any of the hand fed food or from the syringe. He tends to eat cobs of corn on his own but won't eat the baby formula. He has been with me for 2 days now, but I am worried that only eating corn is not going to give him the nutrients he needs.

Should I be concerned? What should I do to get him to eat?
