|Vetafarm Parrot Hand Rearing Food|

Hand rearing requires a formula which will allow the baby to quickly adapt to the brooder environment and consistently gain weight. Using a balance of plant and animal protein, grains for energy and extra vitamins the formulation of Parrot Hand Rearing Food has proven to be a very efficient food for baby birds.
Recommended for: all Parrots as a complete hand raising formula from 7-10 days old to weaning.
Also suitable for: Other bird species such as passerines and pigeons.
Feeding: Simply add hot water to the powder and mix with a fork or whisk to eliminate lumps. Ensure the food is at 38 – 40ºC when fed. Generally, each feed should consist of a volume equivalent to 10 – 15% of the chick’s body weight. Do not overfeed as this may cause crop stretching or regurgitation and aspiration of food. Allow the crop to nearly empty between feeds.
Hand Rearing Food should not be used with any other supplement. Hand Rearing Food is a veterinary balanced diet, mixing other foods or supplements will dilute the nutrition and unbalance a young bird’s diet.
Ingredients: Select Australian whole grains including: Corn, Wheat, Soybean & Oats, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and Probotic ®.
Hand rearing a baby bird is demanding. Ensure all aspects of the chick’s welfare are considered – such as brooder temperature, humidity, feeding temperature, feeding method and hygiene.
