Proper Feeding Consistency
Age 1-3 Days
Age 4-14 Days Slowly, during the next 10 days, thicken the formula every other day until it is the consistency of baby applesauce (approximately one part formula to three parts water). Modify consistency and feeding frequency based on the bird's weight gain.
Age 15 Days to Weaning Mix to the consistency of thick applesauce (approximately one part formula to two parts water). If at any time during the hand-feeding process the baby bird's digestion slows to a point of concern, return to feeding a thinner formula to increase crop emptying.
If at any time during the hand-feeding stage, the baby bird is experiencing crop stasis, dehydration, weight loss or other serious problems, consult your avian professional immediately.Assess Proper Amounts to Feed
Weigh Daily to Monitor Proper Growth Rate
As a young bird matures, its crop grows and feeding frequency will decrease from every two hours to every 6-8 hours per day by the time the bird is 4-6 weeks of age. Some larger parrots may require only two feedings a day as they grow closer to their weaning stage. Feed and weigh your bird on a regular schedule each day.
Weaning Your Baby Bird
Make sure the bird is eating sufficient quantities of the weaning diet on its own and maintaining its weight before eliminating the Embrace Hand-Feeding Formula. Continue to weigh the bird daily.Embrace
