Conure
My sun conure is about 50 days old. I brought it when it was around 30 days. I use the Nutribird A21 formula to handfeed. As you can see it has grown up quite well. But it is now unwilling to take the formula. Moreover, it cannot self feed yet. What can I do to make things better?

The first pic was when I got it home and the second pic was taken a minute ago. Thanks in advance. Hoping for your replies.

I am hoping that as well. My bird is getting slender and it is really getting hard as he is unable to eat by himself or by handfeeding.

Are you in close contact with an experienced breeder(By that I mean you have their number, know one personally etc)? Also, if you see that (s)he doesn't eat for a long time then (s)he might need an avian vet..
