Average weight of SI Eclectus-8 wks old??

I have a male eclectus that I have been hand raising since he was 3wks & 5 days old. As of today, he is 8wks & 5 days old. He has been weighing in from 380-385gms daily this past week. He is on 3 feedings daily & has millet sprays to start with seeds. Today he weighed in at 375gms. He is VERY active in his cage.
Is this an ok weight for him? He has pellets and small seeds too in a feeder along with water. Should I increase him back to 4 feedings? He only takes about 35cc each feeding then won't take anymore.
Thank you in advance for the help.
