It all depends on the bird. Please find a breeder where you live to help you in person.

feeding your ringneck
by: Roe

At 1 month old I was still feeding my baby ringneck 5x a day. I gave him formula that was the same consistency as apple sauce. While their this young the only fluids they get is from the formula. If the don't get enough they die. My ringneck is now 3 months old and doing great.

Your baby Ringneck Parakeet needs to be eating more than 60ml a day of baby parrot handfeeding formula. There is some on this site if you can get it into your country. Nothing else will keep baby healthy until weaning time. He needs to be eating about 25-30mls of the baby parrot handfeeding formula at least 3-4 times a day. Do not overfeed. In other words, if the baby's crop is full, then it is done with that meal. Make sure you have learned how to feed using a syringe because feeding with a spoon causes a lot of air to go into the crop sack and causes bird much discomfort, and it cannot eat enough food at a sitting.

If you have no training in feeding with a syringe, then get with a breeder immediately and learn how and what they are feeding, how much and how often. Your bird needs to be eating and pooping regularly, and food must be warm enough to be easily digested. Cold food just sits in the crop and rots and is the cause of many baby bird's deaths.

All this is what you should have learned BEFORE either breeding or buying an unweaned baby. I hope this one is not another dead baby in the making. Let us know how it goes when you have time and good luck with keeping this baby alive.
