At the first of September. the chick is on 2 feedings, also eating fruit (especially bananas), veggies, small pieces of nuts, peanuts, and sunflower seeds, and Hot 'N Hearty cooked food, which has legumes, sweet potatoes, grains, seeds, greens, and probably a lot more good ingredients.
I have been calling her/him Aileen, after my dear aunt, but am wondering if the bird shouldn't be called "Alain" or "Alex!" So, I have been careful to say she is such a good bird, not girl!
|At 102 days the chick weighed 2.25 lb., and up to 2.5 when just fed, which looks exactly right according to to Joanne Abramson's Large Macaws book. The father weighs 2.75 lbs. and the mother 2.50 lbs. I feed the parents nuts, peanuts, and Zupreme monkey biscuits, cooked Hot and Hearty , broccoli, carrots, varied fruits, sunflower seeds, corn on the cob, cuttle bone pieces, and whole wheat bread. And more...|
