INDIAN RINGNECK
Good morning . I have an Indian ringneck that is 4 months and half . She was born on February 28 2022 . She is adorable , playful but , she doesn’t want to stop being feed formula . I give her all type of fruits , vegetables , seeds , she eats just a little of them and she keeps wanting her mayor amount of food from formula . She runs behind me with the little cup I use for formula when I refuse to give it to her . She even behave agresiva when I don’t give her the formula because she is hungry . Any advise ? Should I keep feeding her like a baby ? 🤯

I was recently reading about how it's been observed that parrot parents will continue to feed their offspring, even after they are fully fledged out and eating on their own, to comfort them in stressful situations or reward them for good behavior.

I have no answers for how to apply that tidbit, but I thought it might be interesting/useful somehow.

Human kids will do this too, honestly. I think my youngest single-handedly supported the PNW dairy industry when she was being weaned off the bottle…

It’s better to abundance wean than force wean! She won’t be eating baby formula forever, I promise. :)
