The number of feeding sessions per day depends on the parrot’s age and species.
Its use is recommended until the chicks have fledged.
During weaning phase, it should be gradually replaced with dry adult food.
For younger birds under a week old we recommend Psittacine Crop Milk (listed separately) initially, and then a mix of both formulas until ringing.

Hand-feeding formulas are ideal for hand-rearing baby parrots and hand-feeding convalescent adult birds following illness or medical treatment.
These hand-feeding formulas have been formulated to constitute 100% of the diet of a parrot chick during the entire growth period: from birth to fledging.
At weaning phase this food can be gradually replaced by the most suitable formula for the species.
On average, medium and large-sized parrots consume from 7ml – 10ml of hand-feeding formula per 100g of body weight.
