The average intake is around 7-10 ml per 100 g of body weight and feeding bout. The number of feeding bouts per day depends on the stage of development of the chick. The crop should be full but not overstuffed.

Confirm that the crop is empty in the morning. It is advisable to use a first-age hand feeding formula for younger birds like Psittacus Psittacine Crop Milk. At weaning switch progressively to Psittacus mini. The leftover formula must be discarded after each feeding bout.
