Mazuri Hand Feeding formulas

Optimize Health and Nutrition for Baby Birds with Hand Feeding Formulas from Mazuri

Hand feeding a baby bird is an intricate yet immensely rewarding task that can nurture a strong bond between the bird and their owner. However, experts typically recommend that only experienced bird owners attempt hand feeding, as the process requires a significant amount of time, patience, and the right tools to provide these tiny creatures with the nutrition and attention they need to thrive. Our friends at Mazuri® are pleased to announce new packaging for their hand feeding formulas, which are designed to simplify the feeding process for bird owners while fostering their feathered friends’ health, nutrition, and development. Read on to learn more about these formulas.

Benefits of Mazuri Hand Feeding Formalas

Mazuri Bird Hand Feeding Formulas offer several benefits for both birds and their owners, including:

  • Nutritious formulations designed to support healthy growth and feather development.
  • An easy-to-mix formula that turns pink when mixed with water, thereby providing important pigments to the birds while signifying that the formula has been adequately combined.
  • Designed to promote hydration in young birds.
  • Ideal levels of natural pigments and vitamins, including natural source vitamin E.
  • Natural preservatives, and no artificial flavors or colors.
  • Iron-controlled formula, making it ideal for iron-sensitive species.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids to support healthy development.

Mazuri offers multiple hand feeding formulas to provide healthy options for various species:

Mazuri Hand Feeding Formula

For baby birds of fruit- and seed-eating species, such as parakeets, cockatiels, conures, lovebirds, and other psittacine species.

Mazuri High-Fat Hand Feeding Formula

For baby birds of fruit- and seed-eating species that would benefit from higher fat levels, such as macaws, African grey parrots, Eclectus, and larger psittacine species.

Mazuri Songbird Hand Feeding Formula

For baby birds of insect-eating species, such as jays, robins, woodpeckers, bluebirds, and others.

When mixing these formulas with water prior to feeding, the powder ratio will vary by species and chick age, and should be modified to fit the nutritional and hydration needs of particular birds, as well as to ensure that the product easily flows through the syringe you are using. Young chicks will require more water—up to 90% water and 10% powder in the first weeks after hatching. Most chicks will eat 10% or more of their body weight per feeding, but it’s crucial to monitor body weight on a daily basis and adjust feeding rates accordingly to ensure proper growth.
