7 week old Lovebird won't take its formula

by Sarah

Hi, I have a 7week old bird bought from a breeder that has been fed since 3 weeks. It has been given a baby bird formula to eat, but apparently it doesn't want to take it anymore. The breeder told me to feed it the food despite it not wanting it, but I don't want to force the formula (from a bird spoon) down its throat. It won't eat it otherwise, and I'm a little concerned that it won't eat seeds or anything either.

You can not wait for Dr B to answer this, you need to find an avian vet to see your bird in person before it dies. If you don't have an avian vet, you can use our Find an Avian Vet link to find one.

Please read Dr B's To Wean or Not To Wean article also.
