DIRECTIONS FOR HAND-FEEDING:
Start hatchlings on a dilute diet of about 10 percent formula, 90 percent water (10 percent solids). Measurements are best made on a weight basis. Volume measurements can be variable and may lead to uneven and slow growth. If volume measures must be used assume 1 cup of water = 250 grams and 1 cup loosely packed Formula 3 = 100 grams. 1/4 cup Formula 3 in 1 cup water is about 10 percent solids. As chicks get older gradually thicken the formula. Different species will require higher percentages of solids at different ages. The table provided on the packaging is a general guideline only. Mix dry formula into warm water and feed as soon as possible. Make fresh formula at each feeding. Never feed leftovers. Do not supplement with vitamins or minerals. Feed chicks at regular intervals during a 16-hour period each day. Time feedings such that the crop is almost empty at the time of the next meal. Fill the crop at each feeding.
