After this time we recommend a follow-on hand-feeding formula.
We recommend Frugivorous Psittacine Crop Milk during the first phase of the early-age stage.
It is ideal for a variety of parrot species of the Loriinae sub-family and of the general Eclectus, Pyrrhura, Pionites.
Psittacus Parrot Frugivorous Neonatal Hand-Feeding can also be used for chicks that require a supplement to the diet they receive from their parents.
It is also an effective food for malnourished chicks as it contains a high proportion of dehydrated whole egg and papaya, which aids the digestive transit.
From one week old, chicks should eat up to six times each day, although this will vary according to the species.
Crop capacity will indicate the amount to be fed at each feeding session, approximately 7 ml – 10 ml of formula per 100 g of body weight.
The number of feeding sessions should decrease with age.
