Feeding

When birds are rearing young in the nest I sprinkle ‘Nutribird’ A21 hand-rearing formula over their normal diet, a teaspoon per chick. ‘Nutribird’ can be ordered from Junglegold over the phone on 01953 452321, or from their webshop at https://junglegold.co.uk/morley-aviaries.

You will need to adjust depending on how many you are feeding. I feed about 80 adult turacos. My diet can be seen at: http://www.turacos.co.uk/about/feeding-turacos-at-walnut-tree-cottage

Is it possible that your chick is overweight? Is it very bulbous underneath? If so, try to water the food down considerably for a while.
I use a mix which is mostly banana, with some papaya and some Nutribird A21. I also add some powdered cuttlefish.
Have you seen the article I wrote in Spring 2001?
(Since then I have added papaya and some probiotic.)
