Re: How long should i hand fed my 3 months old BLUE-NAPED PARROT?

Every bird is different and wean at different ages. Are you already offering soft foods and providing water in their cages? If they are 12 weeks old, they should be eating on their own some, but sometimes they will take as long as 16 weeks. It all depends on the birds willingness to actually eat on their own. Some like to remain babies while others prefer independence. I'd just keep feeding them handfeeding formula and offering them a varied diet of soft foods. Since baby birds are curious about everything, they should experiment with anything you place in their cage, once they decide they like the taste of something make sure you offer it in abundance until they decide it is time to eat a normal amazon diet.
