He's refusing feed when HE DECIDES he's full. I've started offering him soft adult foods. Shall I put some food tray inside his box?

Make sure the baby is being kept at the right ambient temperature and humidity.

Make sure that the formulate is the right temperature.

Make sure that the formulate is the right thickness. The older they get, the thicker the formula can be.

Watch for any signs of sickness, baby not feeling well.

Yesterday I gave the baby some mashed banana. She took it really fast. I thought banana can give her a spike of sugar energy level. I think she likes it better than boiled carrots.

Sorry I was away for some days there. Glad Monica was around to offer great advice. How are you getting on?
Remember not to overdo it on fruit before weaning. Opt for cooked sweet potato, peppers etc

The baby is doing well by God's grace . Feathers are coming out all over the body. From this stage I can make out she/he will a very independent person. One problem, her nails are pretty sharp. Can I trim them at this young age??

I usually don't. A young birds bones are not as strong as adults. The nails are sharp because they are new. They will file down once your bird starts playing and perching :)

From what I understand, baby bird nails are a bit like kitten nails - crazy sharp, but not able to be trimmed until they’re older because the keratin is flimsy and easily broken. Hopefully it doesn’t get too much worse before it gets better!

Do you have an updated photo? I’m absolutely in love with the little thing.

Today the baby started exploring the surroundings. She licked and nipped my fingers. How to teach her about the right beak pressure? The baby has massive beak in comparison to her body, it will be very powerful in future.

Start giving baby lots of different textures to explore!

Kind of like having a puppy... no, don't chew this! Chew this instead!

It can be rather exhausting, but it'll be worth it in the end!

The baby is exploring and playing with few safe foot toys. I've kept her inside a well covered small cage, because she is refusing her box. She is independent since the beginning. When can I offer her some low perches? She's trying to climb sometimes.

I can’t imagine there’s any harm in it now, but I’m not a baby expert

When she can grab them.
Try holding a perch out low over a table or the floor and see if she can hold it. If she can, then out some perches in lower down in the cage and see how she gets on.
I think she will be able to perch now, given her feather growth and age.
