Formulated to hand-rear psittacine birds of the Cacatuidae family (except the cockatoos of the Probosciger and Calyptorhynchus genera), from the moment pin feathers emerge until weaning.


It is formulated to hand-rear cockatoo chicks (except those from the genera Probosciger and Calyptorhynchus).

It is a follow-on hand-feeding formula formulated to constitute 100 % of the chick’s diet. It should be fed from the moment pin feathers emerge until weaning.

It is advisable to prepare the formula with lukewarm water at a concentration of approximately 25 % solids. It is recommended to administer the formula with a soft feeding tube.

For younger animals, it is necessary to use first-age hand-feeding formulas like the Granivorous Psittacine Crop Milk or the Granivorous Nonatal Hand Feeding (depending on the age of the chick).

At weaning switch progressively to Omega.
