Harrisons Neonate Formula is scientifically formulated to provide the very best nutrition for a range of the smaller baby parrots.
It is reccommended to be used from hatching through their early life stages to their conversion over to Harrisons Juvenile Organic Hand Feeding Formula (this period varies with the species of bird).
Harrisons Neonate Formula comes as a powder, and when water is added it becomes a creamy liquid and does not seperate on standing.
This helps the food to move through the digestive system and promotes good nutrient absorbtion and assists with healthy growth.
Harrisons Neonate Formula can be used for hand rearing baby birds of other types such as finches and small insectivorous birds.
It is also ideal for the supplementary feeding of finches, canaries and parrots.
Use as a hand feeding formula for smaller parrots, parakeets and cockateils from day 1 until moving over onto juvenile formula.
Can also be used as a hand rearing formula for wild seed-eating birds.

Caution: The correct feeding technique must be used in order to prevent injury to the bird or inhalation of the formula that could result in pneumonia and death.

Step 2: Mix fresh: 1 part dry formula to 1-3 parts bottled drinking water heated to approximately 103degrees fahrenheit (39 degrees celsius). Do not microwave. Allow to cool to lukewarm.
Step 3: Feeding with an irrigation syringe is probably the most universally successful technique. As one faces the bird, position the syringe to enter the oral cavity from the left side of the birds beak and direct it toward the right side of the birds neck. Deposit the food into the birds mouth and, as it swallows, the normal feeding response closes off the trachea and prevents aspiration of the formula into the lungs.
Step 4: Feed the bird until the crop is full but n
