As baby birds grow very rapidly, it is difficult to determine the ideal consumption. The capacity of the bird's crop will be the decisive factor. On average the birds consume from 7 to 10 ml of milk per serving, and per 100g of body weight. The number of doses per day will depend on the age, species and breeding protocol.
The crop milk should be prepared with hot water in sufficient quantity to achieve a creamy texture (about 25% concentration). The concentration should be continuously increased as of Day One. A very low -concentration milk should be provided at the first feed after hatching (approximately 5%); for each of the following feeds the concentration should gradually be increased until it reaches the recommended level. These recommendations are approximate, as each species requires its own specific hand-rearing protocol. With newborns it is important to supply the milk at a temperature as close as possible to the bird's body temperature (39ºC), but without exceeding it, in order to avoid burning the crop.
