Starting Your Baby Bird on Neocare
For best results always start with a very runny mix. Add 2 small level scoops (scoop enclosed in packet) of formula to a jar or cup, then add one large scoop and one small scoop of boiling water. Mix thoroughly using a fork for 30 seconds or until an even consistency is achieved (like gritty milk). Check temperature and feed. The above mix then needs to be gradually thickened over a 48 hour period, at which point the below regular mixing directions are to be used until the bird is weaned.
Mixing Regular Formula
Add one large level scoop of formula to a jar or cup, then add one large scoop of boiling water. Mix thoroughly using a fork for 30 seconds until a thick and consistent paste is formed. Add a further 3 small scoops of cool water and mix for a further 2 minutes or until an even consistency is achieved. Check temperature and feed.
Recommended Food Temperature
The temperature of food fed to babies (irrespective of age) should be between 36- 38ºC. Temps hotter than 43ºC will begin to burn the crop, lower than 34ºC will cause problems with digestion. It is important that you DO NOT use a microwave to heat the formula.
Feeding Frequency and Amount
The age and species of birds being raised affects the amount and frequency of feeds. Be sure to research the requirements of your individual birds thoroughly before you begin. As a rule, the last feed of the day should be late at night around 10-11pm and the next feed early the following morning at approximately 5-6am. It is important to note that at the first feed of the day the crop should be completely empty. The crop should be allowed to empty completely once every 24hrs.
Whole grains (corn, wheat & soybean), Vegetable oils and Natural organic acids, Amino acids (lysine and methionine), probiotics and pre-digestives. Vitamins (A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12, C, D3, E, H & K), Minerals (calcium, cobalt, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, sodium, sulphur & zinc).

Neocare should not be used with any other supplement, unless advised by a veterinarian. Neocare is a veterinary balanced food, mixing other foods or supplements will dilute the nutrition and unbalance a young birds diet. If hand feeding from hatching, an electrolyte formula should be fed for the first 24+ hrs or until the bird passes its first dropping. Neocare is then fed at a runny consistency and thickened over a period of days.
