roundybush is a realy great brand.  our aian vet who teaches up at the vet college in Raleigh says birds on roundybush are so much healthier that he can see it...the only one he likes more is harrisons.  they have a great formula for hand feeding and weaning.

I doesn't sound like a sick bird....sounds just like a slow starter to me.  kaytee is horrid, don't use it.

I`ve been raising/breeding/handfeeding/selling parrots for over 20 years (parakeets/budgies, cockatiels, 6 subspecies of conures, parrotlets, amazons, lovebirds, etc.). I've been published in "Budgies" and "Cockatiels" offered by Bow Tie Productions, and have written avian articles for publication in England. I can provide advice in raising healthy birds, handfeeding/weaning babies, some health problems, nail/beak/wing clipping, general husbandry, etc. I also have experience with racing/showing homing pigeons. I cannot diagnose specific illness over this website. If you suspect your bird is ill or if you have an emergency, contact a certified avian veterinarian or emergency pet clinic ASAP.
