    This is general because he is thinking your feeding him something so try not to act like your feeding him when he is already fed

    Can you post a picture showing what the peachick is doing? How old is the peachick? Can you post a picture of the peachick's environment? We need more of a description of what's happening.

    Welcome to the Pea Universe!
    As others have noted, more information and photos would be helpful. And sooner would be better, because if your little guy has a problem you need to help him as soon as you can.
    It is unlikely that he wants to be fed, as peachicks don't gape for food like some other small birds (not that I have ever seen, anyways).

    And we really like pictures anyways! [​IMG]

    You are correct, they do not gape for food.
