Love Bird still not eating
In June I made a comment about my love bird not weaning.. Well It is almost a year old and still he wont eat anything other than formula.
I have another bird with him to learn by immitation. that dosent work either.
I try to give him banana by hand or peanut butter on my finger, he pecks a little bit but dosent really eat it..
He has millet hanging in the cage and only plays with it.
I am thinking that he is brain damaged, as he was badly pecked on the head when a baby, which is why I got into this situation in the first place. There were 2 of them, but I had no trouble with the other one that is now returned to the aviary. Now he is bonded to me and follows me everywhere like a little duck, when I let him out of the cage, but he wont eat, I have tried restriction and that dosent work either, as he almost died.. His beak is normal. i either feed him or he will die.But this is very trying 3 times a day.
Has anyone else been through this, you are much more experienced than I am..Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated.
