Is he eating the seed? I don't think one feeding a day is enough, unless he is eating a lot on his own. I would try giving him food a few times a day, even with seed left there for him to peck at. They usually like safflower seeds, which you could mix in, and they're higher in fat for weight gain. I sometimes use Nutri-stat. It is sold in pet stores, it's for dogs and cats. Has lots of vitamins and minerals in it, and CALORIES. It helps. I mix it with formula and give it that way if I'm trying to put weight on. I just give it in an eye dropper. You need to try to get more food into him. How much is he eating on his own?i have this also but did not use it http://www.foyspigeonsupplies.com/catalog/1315.html
