    Need handfeeding formula urgently !!!! for my baby cockteil

    The mother had stopped giving food from the morning today .. and is plucking the baby's feather whenever we allow it near the chick.

    Till yesterday evening the mother fed the babies... I live a long way from the pet stores (nearby ones dont have the handfeeding formula). And the online order need around 2 days for delivery ...

    Can some one tell me what food I can give these chicks till then.... they are around 3 & half weeks (almost 20days) old.... The chicks are crying for food .. nd none of the other birds are giving it food..Till yesterday the mother didnot pluck the babies feather ...

    I am totally not sure what to do... and the babies are crying for food

    I would suggest calling an avian vet, even if it one far away, and explain to them what is happening. I would hope they could tell you what to feed them. Also, see if you can contact a bird rescue or animal hospital in the area. They also may be able to help you.

    It is hard to hand feed babies and I agree about calling a avian vet for advise. I know you have to feed exact amounts and it has to be the perfect temperature when you feed it.

    Hey, we usually add baby cereal and gram flour together and feed that to our babies. Hope that helps!

    I admire you completely for taking her to the vet!! I am happy for you that the babies are eating the formula the vet ordered. You may have to take over complete hand feeding if the mom stops at night too. Please provide updates at your conveniernce. Thanks for sharing.
