Tube feeding Pigeons and Doves straight into the crop is the quickest and cleanest way to hand rear them.
We have 3 different sizes of feeding tube depending on the age of the bird:-
- 2.5ml syringe with 2.5mm tube for newly hatched Pigeons and Doves
- 10ml syringe with 4mm tube for 2-3 week old Pigeons and Doves
- 20ml syringe with 5mm tube – 3 weeks and over
These tubes stand up well to steam sterilising. If you are using sterilising fluid, do not leave them submerged for longer than the recommended time as the rubber will begin to degrade.
