Is it good for baby sparrows
Answer by ChewyJul 07, 2019
This food can be used with baby sparrows.

Hi for how long I can feed my bird with this?
Answer by ChewyMay 20, 2021
Weaning age will vary depending on the individual bird species so it is best to research your species. To encourage the weaning process, exact Conversion diets should be offered when "exploration" begins. When the baby bird is fully feathered, offer exact Conversion diet, or an adult daily diet of exact Natural food or exact Rainbow food in a clean food cup, in addition to routine hand feeding. The baby bird will slowly begin to prefer these new forms of the food. Fresh water must be provided at all times. Prolonged use of hand feeding formula beyond the normal weaning age, or excessive feeding, may result in health concerns. A chick will lose up to 10% of its body weight during weaning as it begins to eat on its own. Birds wean easily onto exact Conversion diets or exact adult daily diets because of compatible taste and ingredients.

formula helpful for omnivores too

Rgregarding other reviews as to not for wild birds or, not for starlings… yes starlings need approx 33%. Protein, but add protein to this, or rather ,add This to protein , as it has the -biotics and enzymes that can help. Wit h any bird consider complete nutritional needs. And consider the specific situation, we don’t always have access to the exact ingredients we want. So we do our best with what we have available.

If Mommy can't

If the parents aren't able to care for their babies this is the best way to go. I have used this formula for quite a few babies and they all have done great with this

First experience a total success shopping rexexw5

I was so pleased when my order arrived so quickly. I had run out of food for my baby. I had traveled 40 miles to town to pick some up but stores were all out. I should have placed my order sooner!

Not appropriate for ALL baby birds - Insectivorous or Omnivorous Wild birds.

Hi there, Baby Starlings & Sparrows need a baby diet high in animal protein. Yes as adults they also eat seed but to develop as nestlings & fledglings they need a diet 33% and higher in animal protein. Kaytee is only 22% protein and its from plants. Your rescue baby starling and sparrow needs more than that. Check back of cat or dog biscuits - first ingredient needs to be chicken and check the percentage of protein. Soak in hot water and mush it up completely like porridge so the baby doesn't have blockages in its corp when you feed it. Needs calcium and bird vitamins as well, not just protein but that will get you far!. I do recommend Kaytee for Pet Parrots etc and the ones that it mentions on the back of the package.

No sugar added!

I haven’t used this yet, but it was the only hand feeding formula that has good mixing consistency (per reviews) that surprisingly does not contain added sugar! Though I have read many people complaining about Kaytee in general, their formula is as complete as you could hope for considering today’s pet-feeding standards, and is not grainy like Harrison’s, and a fraction of the price.
