Today I rescue a baby parrot... What is best food which is help my parrot ..pls help me

Editor's note: It depends on what bird and where you live. Please contact an avian vet in your area for advise. Here in the USA I would feed Harrison's or Roudybush pellets. Depending on the species you may need to feed 80% pellets or less.

I agree, but disagree

I agree with what you guys are saying, but at the same time it has offered no help. Some advice as far as feeding until they can get to a vet would be idea even would be nice so I am offering some though I am no vet, and barely experienced with weaning....You should hand feed the baby every 4 hours and 4 times a day. The mix should be thin for very young and become thicker the older they are. Some food is better than none, use warm water, but never too hot...kinda like a baby bottle. Do not feed more often than every four so they can digest it...and take to an avian vet ASAP!!

If your bird doesnt eat today he will die. There is no way he is 3 months old, the breeder probably just told you that as a lie. To me, he looks no more than 6 weeks old. He needs a warm, baby parrot formula meal NOW and should be fed this 4 times a day. Ugh but you probably do not even know how to feed properly, how warm, how much.. Inexperienced people will kill they baby accidentaly!! I see this turning into a diaaster and I am getting very emotionally sad for this poor baby right now. Take him back to the breeder ASAP (or better yet an avian vet) so he has a chance of living!!!!!

Feeding a baby parrot
by: Tracie

Oh how we hate to hear that people sell unweaned birds to people. Ugh!

You need to take this poor bird back to the breeder and let them finish hand feeding the bird. The person likely sold you the bird this young because they just want to make money and they don't care if the baby bird dies.

I realize in your country there may not be good breeders that take care of their birds and only sell weaned, healthy birds. I don't know what you can feed the bird, because I don't live in your country and don't know what is available there.

Please read our To Wean or Not To Wean article that was written by an avian vet.
