Hi, just catching up on this. Not sure if another grey would help, as it sounds like you have your hands full already. Is she drinking from her bowl if you hold it, or sryinge? Have yoy tried her with warm mashed veggies, she would get moisture from those, birds tend not to drink a lot anyway unless they have kidney problems x
Can you post a photo? Hops she's ok :)

You canít get a bird to sort out another one and give it away, even if it is to family, that is a huge trauma for a bird, please donít do that.
How old is she now? Iíd stop feeding her for a day or 2 & see how she gets on, she absolutely should be weaned now, but they enjoy being fed so as long as you are doing it, sheíll keep taking it. She now needs to learn to eat :)

Yi've stopped feeding her and she is feeding herself but she tends to only eat the striped sunflower seeds. Im watching her weight and it seems ok but is this healthy for her

Itís better if you can get veggies down her and pellets if sheíll have, try veggies chopped, whole, cooked, raw & find out what she likes :)
