My bird 'Buddy'

My bird 'Buddy'

I have a 10 week old blue masked lovebird which I am struggling to wean off his hand rearing mix. I have had him sine he was 4 weeks old, he is still getting 3 meals a day. (He does eat a little seed but not enough to fill him)
I have tried to cut down his meals to two a day but if he doesn’t get fed he will cheap and cheap constantly for hours till I give in and he gets a meal. Is this wrong of me?
Should I stop the meals altogether or persist with this gradual weaning?

What a beautiful bird!

I am not a breeder, so I really can't help you with your question personally, but I want to encourage you to call a lovebird breeder and talk to them about this situation.
