Smile Egg

If this is the youngest chick to be weaned it may need more time and may be smaller than the others. Use egg food mixed with seeds and try some nutriberries which are made with pellets and preshelled seeds. millet spray is good as well. Some times a budgie is just lazy and resists the fact that for the rest of its life it will need to eat seed almost constantly instead of dad feeding it. Then one day it will just get the idea and is fine going about eating . the beak can be a little soft so millets are easy as are oat groats and canary seed. Watch for weight loss and be patient. Blessings, Jo Ann
