Product Details
Use the following feeding chart to mix formula according to the chick's age. It is always advised to weigh formula and water to assure proper concentrations. Volume measurements are less accurate but usually sufficient.
Exact Hand Feed 5lb Baby Bird (Kaytee)  Gently hand-feed your new baby birdies with this special Exact formula food. Exact's high nutrition formula helps baby birds grow faster, wean earlier and develop better, brighter plumage than similar birds fed with homemade formulas. All the nutrition your little ones need in a specially designed, easy to feed formula!

Instructions:  Use the following feeding chart to mix formula according to the chick's age. It is always advised to weigh formula and water to assure proper concentrations. Volume measurements are less accurate but usually sufficient.

  Volume Weight 
Age (days) Exact Water Exact Water

Hatch-2 1 part 6 parts* 8% 92%
2-5 days 1 part 2-3 parts 16-20% 80-84%
5-weaning 1 part 1 1/3-2 parts 25-30% 70-75%
*An electrolyte solution may be substituted for the first two days only, but not necessary.
Combine formula and hot water (approximately 120 degrees F.) in a clean, sanitized container according to the age chart above. If your tap water contains bacteria, boiling water first is recommended.)
Mix formula thoroughly and allow it to sit for one minute.
Cool mixture to 105 degrees F (or between 102-110 degrees F.) Mixture should have the consistency of thick creamy pudding. If a smoother consistency is desired, stir product vigorously at this time, which aids in activating added enzymes.

Baby birds should be fed on a routine schedule allowing the chick's crop to empty (or nearly empty) between feedings and to determine if bird is being fed the right amount. This prevents any food remaining in the crop too long and possibly spoiling. If the time between crop emptying suddenly increases and the crop appears to be slowing down, observe the chick closely.
Feed mixture with a clean, disinfected syringe, spoon, tube or other comfortable method. A separate implement should be used for each baby to prevent spread of disease.
Dispense food along with the chick's feeding response (rhythmic bobbing motion) to prevent formula from being inhaled.
Feed until the chick's crop is nicely rounded or it refuses any more food, whichever comes first. Do not overfeed or regurgitation may occur. Generally, each meal should consist of a volume equivalent to 10-12% of the bird's body weight.
Clean and sanitize feeding equipment after use. Clean any spilled food from the chick and change bedding after each feeding. Good hygiene is critical for a baby bird's health.
