Today, he refused breakfast formula twice. But he's eating food. I'm not sure. Maybe I will start a new thread about it. I read that they wean at an average of 14 weeks, but some can take as long as 6 months. He's almost 15 weeks now (3.3 months). The shop told me to continue feeding 2x a day for ~3-4 weeks, then 1x a day for another ~2-3 weeks.

I agree Snarlla. At this stage the Breeding/Raising parrot section would get the expert advice. This location and thread title won't get the answers that you need at the moment. I'll keep following you over there and hope that you do well. I've never had to feed formula so all the best. I'm sure someone will be able to help and encourage you once you get into the right section to get the answers needed.

Re: Young Eclectus coming soon, help me shop!

I spoke to the shop and sent them my chart. They advised me to start phasing out the morning feeding. So the way that works is like, every other day I skip the morning feeding. I just started that yesterday and I think that's the trick. He nibbled at his food all day and then was good and hungry for formula in the evening. This morning he got formula and there was no lolly-gagging around, lol. He took it hungrily. So I'm keeping an eye on his food bowl and other food I've put in there (hanging kabobs, which he seems to love) and eventually he should start phasing out the morning feeding all together
