Bought a unweaned bourke parakeet
This is my first post on the forum.
I have very recently adopted a normal bourke parakeet.
I was told by the breeder she was still getting one hand feeding per day. And was about 12 week old. She showed me how to handfeed her and told me it was no big deal. Being inexperienced I trusted that it would be fine. Silly silly me.
Well, as I was driving home it was 3 hours away she phoned and told me that she was actually only 6 weeks old and may still need approximately 3 feedings a day. When I asked her why she lied and how she could forget something like that she simply said well I have a lot of birds, it's hard to keep track.
Sorry for the long story, I hope it makes sense.
Pretty much I'm looking for as much advice and tips as I can get. I'm feeling anxious and not nearly educated enough. We just adore this little birdie and want to do it perfectly. Thanks in advance. Looking forward to chatting.
