Feeding Directions
Please Note: The correct feeding technique must be used to prevent injury to the bird or inhalation of the formula that could result in pneumonia and death. If using a non-metal or flexible tube, be sure that the bird does not damage the tube.

Step 1: Gently feel the crop to determine that it is almost empty before feeding.

Step 2: Mix fresh: 1-part dry formula to 1-3 parts bottled “drinking water” heated to approximately 103°F (39°C). Do not microwave. Allow to cool too lukewarm.

Step 3: Feeding with a tube is probably the most universally successful technique. As one faces the bird, position the tube to enter the oral cavity from the left side of the bird’s beak and direct it toward the right side of the bird’s neck. Deposit the food into the bird’s crop.

Step 4: Feed the bird until the crop is full but not overstuffed and clean the excess formula from the bird’s beak, feathers, and enclosure. Repeat as often as needed to maintain or increase the bird’s body weight.
