Frugivorous Pigeon Hand Feeding 2.2lbs
Suitable for hand feeding of fruit pigeons from the first week of life until weaning.
Indicated for the hand feeding of frugivorous species of columbiform birds.
The rapid growth of pigeons makes it difficult to determine the ideal consumption. The transit speed of each individual has to determine the maximum quantity to be supplied. The large capacity of the columbiform crop creates the possibility of supercharging the chicks, which we must avoid. As an example, the brave pigeon consumes 60% of its dry hand feeding weight and 40% in preparation, distributed in 3-4 shots and with a maximum recommended dose of approximately 200 ml per day.
It should be prepared with hot water (35-38 ° C) in sufficient quantity to achieve a creamy texture (approximately a concentration of 20-25%). Product of coarse granulometry.
It is a continuation hand feeding that must gradually replace the milk of the crop (Pigeon Crop Milk), supplied during the first days of life, and its use is recommended until the emancipation of the pigeons.
We recommend preparing it with an approximate concentration of 25% solids.
Once the package is opened, it should be stored in a tightly closed container in a cool, dry place.
