Hand Rearing Birds

Hand rearing can be very rewarding but it can also be very distressing when things go wrong. In our experience most problems occur due to poor hygiene or not using a probiotic (especially with incubator hatched chicks).

Use Formula Plus and Potent Brew to make your hand rearing formula the very best.

Avisafe (EnviroClens outside Europe) is also ideal for keeping utensils and equipment clean.

We offer an extensive range of syringes and crop tubes.

For instructions on how to use a crop tube please see the below link:

Finally we also have a page with recommended brooder temperatures. A useful reference guide if things are not quite going right.
