Product Description

Nutri-Start’s baby bird formula for cockatiels and conures produces faster weight gains. It mixes instantly with water, saving you time and effort. No cooking or cooling. Its main ingredient is premium rice flour for maximum digestibility. The pudding consistency, great taste, and aroma make Nutri-Start the most acceptable baby bird formula on the market.

At Lafeber Company, we balance the Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, which help strengthen the immune system. We also use chelated minerals for better absorption, stabilized vitamins for better longevity, and we naturally preserve and flavor our foods. Our recipes are tested by an independent lab to ensure that our strict quality standards are met.



Feeding Directions:

Nutri-Start is formulated for baby cockatiels and conures. The most important considerations in the hand-feeding process are the frequency and volume of feeding. Baby birds grow at an extraordinarily rapid rate. This growth requires a great deal of food to meet the nutritional needs of the bird. However, the crop of a young bird holds a limited amount of food, so it must be filled frequently. As the bird gets older, the capacity of the crop increases, and the number of daily feedings are reduced. The volume to feed is based upon a combination of observation and judgment.

If you have any concerns, please contact your veterinarian.
Nutri-Start is not meant to be fed to insectivorous birds or raptors.

Caution: The correct feeding technique must be used in order to prevent injury to the bird or inhalation of the formula that could result in pneumonia or death.

    Feeding Suggestions

    • One- to seven-day-old birds and birds with slow crop-emptying may benefit from adding a pinch of HBD’s Avian Enzyme to the Formula just prior to feeding.
    • To aid weaning after 21 days of age, add 1 Tbs finely chopped High Potency Formula or finely chopped organic nuts to 1 cup of Formula or introduce dry High Potency Formula in a separate bowl.
