Weaning is a process not something that just happens. Your bird should not be weaned until 12 weeks, and then you can start the process of weaning which takes however long it takes. Please start the weaning off to a good start using organic pellets like Harrison's found here. Follow directions found on package and continue handfeeding two times a day until the bird is eating enough pellets. You can tell this when bird starts refusing one of the two meals a day from the syringe.

You need to do a search on the internet to find more about weaning the Ringneck Parakeets.
