Jardine won't eat and constantly screams... why?
I've had my hand reared Jardine (Georgy) for nearly 5 days now. He is 11 weeks old and is on 2 feedings a day. He was doing well and eating regularly every morning and evening. Last night when I got home after work, I took him out of his cage and same as every other night, he would squawk (talk) while I prepare his formula. Last night he ate a lot, his crop was full, and yet he wanted more food, I did not continue feeding.
After eating he still would not stop squawking, it was not the same as previous, it was a constant screaming. I then prepared grated fruit and fresh veggies for him and put him back in his cage and covered with a blanket (as we are in the beginning of winter here in South Africa) and it was already 8pm.
This morning, my Jardine only ate like 2 spoons full of formula and refused to eat more. AND he was still squawking and screaming like the night before.
I am very concerned and I?m not sure if something could be wrong with my Jardine or if they do sometimes act like this when at this young age ???
I would really appreciate some advice.
