hello! about a week or two ago i hot a baby green cheek conure from my friend's mother. she was 7 weeks when we got her. now she is 8 or 9 weeks and on one formula feeding a day but really doesnt seem too interested anymore. she is eating a lot of fresh fruit and veg and loves her main adult food, so i was wondering if it would be ok to stop feeding her formula, she is eating enough other food that im sure it would be fine, but i just wanted to get the advice of someone more experienced than i am. :gcc:

I don't know what you mean, exactly, by her 'adult' food but, at 9 weeks old, I would still be handfeeding it once or twice a day as well as offering two types of soft food served warm and fresh twice a day, is this what you are doing?

I have seen one adult feed another. Being fed is a thing of comfort.
