Psittacus Soft Feeding Tubes are the ideal complement for administering the hand feeding formulas to parrots from early ages. Their rounded tip allow the chicks to swallow them comfortably and absolutely voluntarily.
Probing with a soft tube is the safest and cleanest method of administering hand rearing formulas.
The different diameters of Psittacus Soft Feeding Tubes allow you to administer the formula to the different parrot species at each stage of development. Thus, for example, for African Grey parrots the 5 ml tube is suitable for supplying early-age formula chicks up to 7 days. The 10 ml tube is for chicks up to 14 days. The one of 20 ml is until 4 weeks of life. From the first month of life, it is advisable to use the 50 ml tube.
Using cockatiels as an example, the soft tube to be used when the feathers emerge (time when chicks are usually removed from nest) is the 10 ml one. Some days after, the 20 ml soft tube would be more useful.
