Re: How young is too young?

Thank you all for the input! I have decided to wait at least a week before going to visit (to not be tempted to take her early).

We all know how anxious we can be to bring the new parrot home, so practicing discipline.

Re: How young is too young?

Like everyone pretty much stated 9 weeks is kind of to young, usually most breeders will give them a extra couple of weeks, just in case they reqress. Usually a cockatiel it take about by 10 to 12 weeks to be fully weaned.

Re: How young is too young?

I admire your being strong enough to resist that gorgeous baby for just a bit longer. Now if only you could teach me to be more disciplined and not buy so many pairs of pretty shoes

Re: How young is too young?

9 weeks is too young IMO
Parent birds/ the handrearer should be doing regular 'Top up feeds' to get them going, instead of setting them to eat food on their own straight away
Thanks
