Use for seed and grain eating birds from hatching, squab over 1-2 weeks of age.
Directions for Handfeeding: Start hatchling on a dilute diet of about 10% formula, 90% water (10% soilids). Measurements are best made on weight basis. Volume measurements can be variable and may lead to uneven and slow growth. If voume measure must be used, assume 1 cup of water = 250 grams and 1 cup loosley packed formula 3 = 100 grams. 1/4 cup formula 3 in 1 cup water is about 10% solids. As chicks get older gradually thicken the formula. Different species will require higher percent solids at different ages. The table below is a general guide only.
Mix dry formula into warm water and feed as soon as possible at about 40 degrees C (105oF). Make fresh formula
at each feeding. Never feed leftovers. Do not supplement with vitamins or minerals.
Feed chicks at regular intervals during a 16 hour period each day. Time feedings such that the crop is almost empty at the time of the next feed. Fill the crop at each feeding.
Store in a cool, dry place. Freezing maximises shelf life without harming the nutrients.
