Sounds good. Stop forcefeeding him for a day and let him practise eating by himself. That is the best way for them to learn how to pick up seeds. Rather put the vegetables in a seperate dish for him.
Hi Marina, first of all a huge thanks for all your important and superbly useful guidelines.
I have a few more doubts though:
1) Ever since I started keeping a mirror, my little friend seems to be more active and confident. It makes some growling noise while looking its head down and restlessly n actively walking around back n fourth and inflating its chest/throat. Hope that its a sign of good health.
2) What I observed so far is that if I give him these pellets, he is frequently excreting/dropping poo. Will it not become weak because of constant emptying of stomach?
I dont know but I just somehow feel that pellets seem better than seeds as it easily dissolves in water and might be easily digested by him and nutrition could be gained in proper manner.
(I experimented these pellets by putting them in a glass of water and saw them dissolving within 15-20 minutes easily)
so which is better, seeds or pellets?
3) Is there any technique by which I can know that his stomach is full or still empty and whether I should give him more of the grains/pellets.
Can you check the below two videos and see if it seems to be healthy to you
and if its stomach is well fed or not
