Re: Weaning Process

We have Sammy, the baby, and an 4 yo White-winged parakeet, Lady. It's a pretty substantial size difference. We haven't let them interact yet, although I have taken Sammy closer to Lady a few times to let him watch her taking treats/nuts from our fingers.

Re: Weaning Process

It would be wise to put them close enough that they can see one another, and give them identical food dishes. But still go the hand feeding rout.

I don't like to think about where I would be if that little budgie had never fluttered into my life.
