Feeding Guideline:
Start hatchlings on a dilute diet of about 10% formula, 90% water (10% solids). Measurements are best made on a weight basis. Volume measurements can be variable and may lead to uneven and slow growth. If volume measurements must be used, assume 1 cup water = 250 grams and 1 cup loosely packed Formula 3 = 100 grams. 1/4 cup Formula 3 in 1 cup water is about 10% solids. As chicks get older, gradually thicken the formula. Different species will require higher percent solids at different ages. The table below is a general guideline only.

Mix dry formula into warm water and feed as soon as possible (at about 105°F). Make fresh formula at each feeding. Never feed leftovers. Do not supplement with vitamins or minerals. Feed chicks at regular intervals during a 16-hour period each day. Time feedings such that the crop is almost empty at the time of the next meal. Fill the crop at each feeding. Store in a cool, dry place. Freezing will maximize shelf life without harming the nutrients.
