WilDiets Granivorous Pigeon Hand-Feeding Formula
This product is particularly suitable for hand-rearing pigeons of granivorous colombiforms inclusive the rock pigeon (Columba livia domestica).
As pigeons grow up very rapidly, it is difficult to determine the ideal consumption. The velocity of transit of each individual has to determine the maximum quantity to supply. The big crop capacity of colombiforms make the possibility that overfeeding happens, that we must avoid. In order to take it as example, the rock pigeon consumes daily an amount of hand feeding formula prepared, that is about 60% and 40% of its alive weight when is already done, it is distributed in 3-4 doses and with a maximum recommended dose of approximately 200 ml per day.
Directions for use
The Granivorous Pigeon hand-feeding formula should be prepared with hot water (a temperature between 35-38ºC is enough) in sufficient quantity to achieve a creamy texture (about 20% concentration). It is a continuation formula that is going to substitute gradually the crop milk given during the first days of the pigeon´s life and that it is going to be supplied= to them until the finalization of the weaning process. Although, each species requires the application of an specific protocol, taking as an example a pet pigeon, the rock pigeon, the introduction of the continuation hand feeding formula begins when they are 4-5 days and the process of the substitution of crop milk must ended when they are 10-12 days (look the protocol of hand feeding formula for this specie).
