Term Definition
Abundance Weaning
The term "abundance weaning" was created and trademarked by Phoebe Greene Linden of Santa Barbara Bird Farm. During abundance weaning, parrot breeders continue to give the chicks handfeedings while offering them solid foods to try. The birds are allowed to stay on handfeedings until they themselves decide that they are ready to eat and drink on their own. Most breeders agree that abundance weaning techniques lead to birds with more stable physical and psychological health.
