Question I'm back! And with another bird :o ps help

It's been a while guys, a long long while. Life has been horrible and taken away many things. But as of Thursday night it has given me a new little boofhead, name pending on dna.

Concerns:
Shim is 9 weeks old today, I've never had a bub below 11 weeks, and shim is constantly begging at me, is only eating sunflower seeds, will do the tiniest little bird nibble at soaked pellets and apple if I hold it but quickly loses interest. Was weaned onto seed and fruit.

I'm just worried shim won't eat enough and become ill in one thing or another, help me! All my other boofs were eager pigs when I first got them!

Pics to follow

There are no quick fixes & you're going to have to find foods, other than seeds & junk foods, but since that's what it was weaned to, that is what it knows and does not have a taste for anything else.....good luck.....

I would grind up the sunflower seeds with some water, and then gradually mix them with egg biscuits...and slowly decrease the amount of sunflower seed... good luck
