There are many myths and unwarranted taboos concerning the feeding of day one Psittacine chicks. Many aviculturists are fearful of tackling the task due to the assumption that delicate handling with painstakingly slow and difficult feeding is necessary for their survival. After 24,000 healthy chicks, we feel confident that anyone with any sense of detail and care can perform the task without error if the proper instruments and methods are used. In this video, I feed a group of different species of Psittacines that range between the ages of five minutes and five days.
