Re: i need help in weaning my cockatiel

I went through that in my first long post, if you read it you'll see some step by step directions for starting the weaning process...And yes, get rid of the sunflower seeds in his seed-mix!!! You don't want him to start weaning onto the most unhealthy thing possible! Pellets would be ideal, but in this situation where weaning is going to be difficult, I would first wean onto a healthy seed-mix with no sunflower seeds, no nuts, and no corn, and then once you get through that, then work on adding pellets...

This isn't a case where the "bird is going to wean itself" normally due to what has already happened, he will "wean himself" and like I said, you can't make those decisions for him, but it's going to take time and patience from you...
