Feeding Instructions

Higgins inTune Hand Feeding is easy to prepare and feed, but there are a few important steps to follow when preparing the formula. We recommend using filtered water that has been heated to 120F (49C). If unsure of the water quality, boil for a minimum of 10 minutes, and then allow the water to cool to 120F before mixing with the hand feeding. We do not recommend using a microwave to heat the water or mixed formula as microwave heating can cause uneven heating and dangerous hot spots.

Use the mixing chart below to determine your bird's inTune food-to-water ratio. Note that the listed ratios are a suggested guideline and may be modified depending on the age, health, type of bird and environmental temperature. Once mixed thoroughly with a spoon, allow the mixture to rest until an inserted thermometer registers a temperature of between 102F - 108F (39C - 42C). This is the recommended temperature to begin feeding.

NEWLY HATCHED TO 2 DAY (24 - 48 hrs) OLD CHICKS: Should be fed a watered down version of the formula. The formula will separate at this ratio, which is a normal occurrence. Blend well prior to each filling of the syringe to ensure adequate delivery of nutrients. A new born chick requires hydration and water soluble nutrients more than anything else at this early stage.

2 TO 5 DAY OLD CHICKS: Begin to eat a thicker formula at a ratio of 1 part inTune Hand Feeding Formula to 3 - 4 parts water. The blended formula should have the consistency of baby food or apple sauce but flows easily from the syringe or pipette.

5 DAYS OLD TO THE WEANING STAGE: Should be mixed at an even thicker ratio and blended to the consistency of a creamy pudding. Ratios listed are our recommendation as a starting point. Humidity, ambient temperature, species of bird, etc. may require slight modifications.
