you can try to give him a meal in the night, 10-12 pm
normally he will sleepy and accept a good meal.

Re: Weaning Indian Ringneck

it looks that the baby start his weaning stage, but he is young for this.
Try to give him 1 meal at the night, 2-3 hours after sleep,
normally in the middle of his sleep he accept the feeding.
Does the baby lives in a nest or something similar box or lives in a cage?

Re: Weaning Indian Ringneck

4 times in a day is ok at this time
your baby must be around 120 gr, is he?
you must give him around 12-13 ml per meal.
the 10-12% of his weight.

Re: peanuts?

peanuts are ok but are rich in fat so you must give only few of them in a day.
Also be careful because it is very common the present of aflatoxins and aspergilus sp. in peanuts and these are very dangerous.
open and check all the peanuts and use only these are fine without any bad spots or signs

it depends from the bird but usual at three months.
the better and more safe way to see if he feeding ok is to weight him.
if you find that he looses weight or stays the same for a few days you must increase the handfeeding otherwise is ok
