 Mixing & Feeding Directions
• Prepared Mazuri® Hand Feeding Formula is designed for feeding chicks.
• Never feed dry powder without first combining with water. Use good sanitation practices and good quality water.

1. To ensure complete hydration of the product, mix with cold water then add hot water to reach feeding temperatures: 100º to 106º F.
• Under- and over-heating can cause impaired gastric motility and crop burns, respectively. 

2. Water: powder ratio may vary due to species. Measuring of powder by weight is recommended; see below for average weight. Suggested mixing ratios include:
• In the first weeks post-hatch, 90% water:10% powder (by weight).
• As the bird grows, 70% water:30% powder (by weight). 

3. Mix thoroughly with a fork or whisk until fully mixed. 
• The product will turn pink upon mixing, which is normal and provides important pigments to the birds and ensures that mixing is adequate. Some pigments may not be fully absorbed, and pink feces may be observed.  

4. Refrigerate until feeding time, within 6 hours of mixing. Reheating is not advised

5. Feed until the crop is full using the appropriate hand-feeding syringe. Do not overfeed.   
• Most chicks will consume 10% or more of their body weight per feeding, but daily monitoring of weights is the most accurate way to ensure proper growth and feeding rates.
• Several weeks before weaning, provide chicks with the food items that it will be consuming, such as high quality extruded diet (e.g., Mazuri® Parrot Breeder Diet or Mazuri® Small Bird Breeder Diet), plus 10-20% (by weight) fruits, veggies and other food items.
