Your birds may still need to be handfed. Usually, it is 8 weeks before weaning can begin, and weaning is a process which takes however long to see the birds eating regular diets.

As for toys and cuttlebone, do not even worry about that right now. What you need to worry about is that your birds are not healthy. Please find an Avian Vet ONLY in your area and have them examined for any kind of infection. Also have them weighed to make sure they are getting enough to eat. A lot of breeders sell birds before they are weaned, and these birds can die from starvation. Unweaned birds or those weaned too early sometimes cannot digest regular food as well as they should.

Please do not wait to take them to only an Avian vet to be checked out.
