Karen it should be easy enough to wean him onto egg and biscuit mix as well as canary and finch or budgie mix. I doubt he will be able to master sunflowers in the future but you never know, some birds can get by really well with severe disabilities!

I lost the mum today - eggbound (I believe). I never noticed because she was sitting on the perch and looked bright enough. When I saw her yesterday afternoon she was sitting with her neck a bit twisted to the side. I picked her up and her chest was hard as a rock. I massaged it for 10 minutes which she seemed to enjoy. I kept her inside last night and was medicating her but she passed away while mum and I were out today. When I took her out of the cage there was a softish mass near her vent which wasn't there yesterday. I guess if she had more time the egg would have come out.
