Baby rejecting feeding syringe

I have a yellow ring neck and green ring neck, both almost the same age- almost 2 months old.
The green does not want to be fed by the feeding syringe anymore.
He wants to eat from a spoon.
I am a newbie and very worried.
Need guidelines please.

This may indicate that the bird is starting to wean, and wanting to begin eating independently. I think you will be fine as long as you have the mixture right (as DianaT said). It might just take a bit longer to get enough food into the bird if it has not had much practice at eating this way yet, nor you at feeding it.

this is normal, as long as its crop gets full and allowed to empty before the night comes. its far safer for the birds to feed off a spoon.
