    Directions for Use

    Prepared food may be stored refrigerated for a day or frozen for up to 2 weeks. Do not add extra vitamin, mineral or concentrated food supplements to these diets.

    Meat Mix
    Mix 10g (1 level scoop) of powder with 20g of minced meat or fish.

    A little water may be necessary to moisten the preparation. Always use good quality meat as a base. Feed as a maintenance diet to magpies, ravens, kookaburras, frogmouths, raptors and seabirds.

    Egg Mix
    Mix 20g (2 level scoops) of powder with 1 large hard-boiled egg.

    Mash the egg with a fork and then slowly add the powder to turn into a crumbly mass. Feed as a maintenance diet to small insectivores (e.g. wrens, robins), waders or to orphaned precocial chicks. Mix in live insects to encourage intake. Can also be used as a protein supplement for softbills, songbirds, breeding finches & parrot

    Moist Pellets
    Mix 10g (2 level scoops) of powder with 12mL of warm water.

    Slowly add the water and mix to a putty-like consistency. Break small pieces from the prepared mix and roll into pellets for feeding. Extra water should be offered by mouth when feeding pellets. Use as a rearing food for orphan magpies, ravens, kookaburras or frogmouths.

    Liquid Slurry
    Add 10g (1 level scoop) of powder with 15mL of warm water.

    Slowly add water and mix to make a slurry. Let the mix stand for 2 minutes to absorb all the water. If too thick, add more water and continue mixing. Feed at about 30°C using a spoon or syringe and tube. Use as a force-feeding formula for sick birds or orphaned altricial chicks.
