I have a 5 wk old Parrotlet this week. The breeder said to feed her 3 times per day. This little doll seems to like smaller helpings 4-5 times per day.
This really is not true. Hand raising falsely imprints parrots on humans, which causes many captive parrots psychological issues later in life.Well, people that have experience, want their baby young, because hand feeding is the process in which the baby will bond to you best, and get used to humans. Most breeders don't interact with their birds. Just feed them all, and put them back into a little dungeon.
