  3. Babies refusing to eat!

    Cockatiel Talk
    I know this is a common problem, especially around this age (4-5 weeks). I'm just so worried they're not getting enough food. They never want to eat formula, so I have to hold them firmly and give them the food. They eat it a bit, but continue to struggle a lot. I can never get them to eat it...

    Milo won't eat or drink. All he wants to do is sit on me. He keeps coming in and out. My Mom described him as seeming Lethargic. I'm so scared. He bent down a few times and would touch the food with his tongue or pick up(then drop) a seed, but he won't eat. I don't know what to do. Please Help...
