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

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