A high grade supplementary food to be used in conjunction with a standard seed diet for cage and aviary birds.
It is a valuable, highly palatable source of energy, proteins, vitamins and minerals. Use all year round for general good health, in preparation for the breeding season and for the rearing of strong healthy chicks. Contains blue maw seed which in addition to its nutritive advantages it has a beneficial settling effect on birds that are incubating or feeding chicks.
Egg is an integral part of breeding programs for cage birds, particularly canaries, finches and budgies. It is especially valuable during the raising of chicks adding extra proteins, lipids and other essential nutrients not found in seed diet.
Best Bird Egg Powder is pasteurized for safety. Feed on a daily basis by adding 1-2 teaspoons per cup of soft-food. When feeding chicks feed more regularly. Mix just prior to feeding and remove any leftovers from the previous feed

Hand rearing requires a formula which will allow the baby to quickly adapt to the brooder environment and consistently gain weight. Using a balance of plant and animal protein, grains for energy and extra vitamins the formulation of Parrot Hand Rearing Food has proven to be a very efficient food for baby birds.
Recommended for: all Parrots as a complete hand raising formula from 7-10 days old to weaning.
Also suitable for: Other bird species such as passerines and pigeons.
Can use with: Hand Rearing Food should not be used with any other supplement. Hand Rearing Food is a veterinary balanced diet, mixing other foods or supplements will dilute the nutrition and unbalance a young bird’s diet.
Key features: Extrusion cooked for safety and increased digestibility. Contains Probotic to promote healthy gut flora. Scientifically balanced to ensure precise nutrition in baby birds.
Feeding: Simply add hot water to the powder and mix with a fork or whisk to eliminate lumps. Ensure the food is at 38 – 40ºC when fed. Generally, each feed should consist of a volume equivalent to 10 – 15% of the chick’s body weight. Do not overfeed as this may cause crop stretching or regurgitation and aspiration of food. Allow the crop to nearly empty between feeds.
Ingredients: Select Australian whole grains including: Corn, Wheat, Soybean & Oats, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and Probotic ®.

For many years bird rearers have used the “bent tea spoon”. Feeding spoons are professionally moulded into a shape that allows good feed flow while giving you the control you require to successfully feed baby birds. A handy implement for feeding small numbers of babies.
Neocare follows nature by providing a form of “crop milk”, essential for the well being of incubated babies and is a great help in those you pull from the nest to hand rear.
Recommended for: the species we commonly hand rear including Parrots, Cockatoos, Finches, Canaries, Pigeons and Doves. Suitable for use from hatching through to weaning.
Also Suitable For: All Parrots as a complete hand rearing formula
Can use with: 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 bird’s 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.
Ingredients: Isolated Soy Protein, Oats, Corn, Vegetable oil, Calcium Carbonate, Vitamins and minerals, Probotic® & Predigestives.
Feeding: Neocare is a fine powder that is mixed with hot water to give the desired mix. For newly hatched babies make a very dilute mix and give a few drops until the baby passes its first dropping. Then feed as required and slowly increase the thickness of the mix until by day 5 they are getting a mix that will fall through the prongs of a fork.
Neocare should be used as the sole source of hand rearing food until weaning. At weaning introduce the birds to either Maintenance Pellets or South American Mix and soft fruit and vegetables.
Most babies reared on Neocare will readily take to pellets.
Hand Rearing is a difficult process; if your birds fail to thrive seek advice from Vetafarm or other professional source.
If you have chicks in the nest you wish to supplementary feed then simply make up a mix of Neocare and crop feed as required – it will boost those slow babies so they can compete with nest mates for food.
