Yes! This is part of my question from the beginning. I had just read a great article from an AHT that is posted on a forum here about the dangers of fasting solely to lose weight rather than decreasing food amounts! When the bird is too low, it talked about the energy reserve being the same as when too high... So when you have lowers the weight of a bird, it's not cooperating, and let's just say, it went to a danger zone of low or the minimum you want they at, is simply not feeding that day a good idea when them are cooperating? Should you wait a few hours and then feed the amount so as not to reinforce a behavior you don't want?

Also apologizes for my spelling, I'm on mobile! Autocorrect!
