  • Super premium hand rearing formula for baby birds
  • Formulated for optimal health and growth in your chicks
  • Ideal from the time the bird is born
  • Fully extruded (ready-to-eat) food for maximum absorption, safety and digestibility
  • Contains pro-biotic to promote healthy gut flora
  • Contains pre-digestives to increase gut efficiency and ensure maximum absorption of nutrients
  • Scientifically balanced to ensure precise nutrition in baby birds
  • Contains all necessary vitamins, minerals, calcium and amino acids for growing bones, organ function and strong feather development
  • Follows in nature’s footsteps by offering a form of ‘crop milk’, required for the well-being of incubated baby birds and is great for birds that have just come from the nest to hand rear.

  • 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

Fresh Formula:

  • Fresh batches of Food must be mixed each feed
  • DO NOT store or refrigerate any pre-mixed formula for later use


Starting your baby on Neocare or Hand Rearing Food:

  • 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

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
