40 day old ringneck dove baby
Is it normal for a dove baby to lose weight during the weaning process? I have cut the formula feedings down to once at night and have been using a seed bottle so he gets enough seeds into his diet while he is learning how to eat the seeds on his own. Seems like every time I cut the formula down to once daily, he loses about 6 grams, then I freak out and feed formula twice daily again. He also has become less vocal during formula feeding time and not begging as much, I guess that is a good sign that he could be ready soon? I just do not want him to be stunted. Thank you.
