Prepare by mixing powder with pre-boiled, warm water according to the feed chart on the pack. Feed with a spoon, syringe or crop tube. Prepare food fresh each meal and thoroughly clean utensils between feeds.
Weigh chicks before feeding each day. On average chicks should gain from 5 -15% of their body weight per day, until they are well-feathered.
Offer adult-type foods once chicks are fully feathered or start to resist being hand fed. Gradually reduce the frequency and volume of hand rearing food to encourage weaning.
