Description

Harrisons Neonate Formula is scientifically formulated to provide the very best nutrition for a range of the smaller baby parrots.

It is recommended to be used from hatching through their early life stages to their conversion over to Harrisons Juvenile Organic Hand Feeding Formula (this period varies with the species of bird).

Harrisons Neonate Formula can be used for hand rearing baby birds of other types such as finches and small insectivorous birds.

It is also ideal for the supplementary feeding of finches, canaries and parrots.

Use as a hand feeding formula for smaller parrots, parakeets and cockatiels from day 1 until moving over onto juvenile formula.

Can also be used as a hand rearing formula for wild seed-eating birds.

Properties

  • For hand-feeding psittacine chicks from hatching to 1 - 3 weeks of age.
  • For young birds needing an easily assimilated source of nutrients.
  • Smooth texture for acceptability by birds until they are eating on their own.

Directions

Caution: The correct feeding technique must be used in order to prevent injury to the bird or inhalation of the formula that could result in pneumonia and death.

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 to lukewarm.

Step 3: Feeding with an irrigation syringe is probably the most universally successful technique. As one faces the bird, position the syringe 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 mouth and, as it swallows, the normal feeding response closes off the trachea and prevents aspiration of the formula into the lungs.

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.

Step 5: Small species older than 21 days and large species older than 7 days should be fed Juvenile Hand-feeding Formula.
