Daily consumption

As baby birds grow very rapidly, it is difficult to determine the ideal consumption. The capacity of the bird’s crop will be the decisive factor. See our guide to fluids here – FLUID CHART FOR BIRDS


The crop milk should be prepared with hot water in sufficient quantity to achieve a creamy texture (about 25% concentration). The concentration should be continuously increased as of Day One. A very low -concentration milk should be provided at the first feed after hatching (approximately 5%); for each of the following feeds the concentration should gradually be increased until it reaches the recommended level. These recommendations are approximate, as each species requires its own specific hand-rearing protocol. With newborns it is important to supply the milk at a temperature as close as possible to the bird’s body temperature (39ºC), but without exceeding it, in order to avoid burning the crop.
