We have a 6week old tiel for a week now. He is our second tiel as our first died very unexpectedly at about 8weeks. He eats 10 - 15ml of formula 3 times a day, very eagerly. He started having very loose stools earlier today, and he is also very distant and looks like he is avoiding to be touched. He would rather sit alone on the cushions than with us. I'm so worried that he might also die. Please help?

Get a digital scale, weigh him every morning before feeding. Make sure his weight is on the right track.
After feeding, you can hold him for a while to socialize with him. I sure at this stage he has lots of feather growth, you can actually help him open pin feathers, which his parents will do, this will help socialization. Keep him warm all the time.
