Feed as a moist crumble, or mixed with finely diced vegetables, soaked seed or other moist foods. Prepare food fresh each day to avoid microbial contamination. Birds that consume live food may be enticed to eat Finch Soft Food by mixing in small insects with the prepared food (e.g. chopped mealworms, fly pupae or termites).
Mix 10g (1 scoop) of powder with approx. 3mL (½ tsp) of water
Slowly add water to the powder while mixing with a fork to form a moist, crumbly mix.
To feed with soaked seed or vegetables:
Mix 10g (1 scoop) of powder with 20g (2 scoops) diced veg or soaked seed
Other foods such as finely chopped greens, fruit, mashed hard-boiled egg or sprouted seed can be used, depending on bird preference. Add a little extra water to moisten the mix if necessary.
