Baby alexandrine food
by: Tracie

I don't know what is available in your country. You must contact an avian vet or some kind of expert to find out what is available where you live. You need to have your bird examined by an avian vet. Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine why your bird is not gaining weight.

In the United States, vitamins you can purchase at pet stores can kill birds due to toxicity. Vitamins should only be given by an avian vet. If people feed their birds properly, with high quality pellets, then they don't need vitamins.

If you can get Harrison's or Roudybush pellets where you live, then that is the best diet. Your bird should eat 80% high quality pellets and only 20% healthy treats once weaned.

Not growing well
by: zidhna

My baby alexandrine is now OK, but it does not grow well. Is there special food or vitamin to make it grow?
Thank you.

Your bird is either sick or being fed incorrectly. Baby parrots have to eat baby parrot handfeeding formulas only. The food has to be fed very warm and baby has to have time to swallow food before being fed more or choking occurs.

If your bird is sick, he has to be taken immediately to an Avian Vet ONLY in your area. Do not take to dog and cat vet because they are not licensed or trained in the care of birds and will most likely kill your baby bird.

Do not wait to have bird examined by avian vet because sick baby birds do not last long.

So, feed only baby parrot handfeeding formula found here using a spoon or syringe. Feed warm according to directions on package. You can test on your inner elbow or wrist area to see if food is too hot. Too hot food will burn babies' crop and too cold food will make them sick as they cannot digest it.

Sounds like your bird is sick, so please get him to avian vet quickly or he will die.
