Direction for Hand Reared Food
Follow the below directions carefully if you are to have success with your hand reared babies.
Starting your baby on Neocare or Hand Rearing
Food: For best results always start with a very runny mix. Add 2 small level scoops (scoop enclosed in packet) of formula to a jar or cup, then add one large scoop and one small scoop of boiling water. Mix thoroughly using a fork for 30 seconds or until an even consistency is achieved (like gritty milk). Check temperature and feed. The above mix then needs to be gradually thickened over a 48 hour period, at which point the below regular mixing directions are to be used until the bird is weaned.
Mixing Regular Formula: Add one large level scoop of formula to a jar or cup, then add one large scoop of boiling water. Mix thoroughly using a fork for 30 seconds until a thick and consistent paste is formed. Add a further 3 small scoops of cool water and mix for a further 2 minutes or until an even consistency is achieved. Check temperature and feed.
Food Temperature: The temperature of food fed to babies (irrespective of age) should be between 36-38ºC. Temps hotter than 43ºC will begin to burn the crop, lower than 34ºC will cause problems with digestion. It is important that you DO NOT use a microwave to heat the formula.
Feeding Frequency and Amount: The age and species of birds being raised affects the amount and frequency of feeds. Be sure to research the requirements of your individual birds thoroughly before you begin.
As a rule, the last feed of the day should be late at night around 10-11pm and the next feed early the following morning at approximately 5-6am. It is important to note that at the first feed of the day the crop should be completely empty. The crop should be allowed to empty completely once every 24hrs.
Fresh Formula: Fresh batches of Neocare or Hand Rearing Food must be mixed each feed. DO NOT store or refrigerate any pre-mixed formula for later use.
