    Not quite shore what brand of handrearing mix I will use I think it may be Elliott's. Which do you think is the best to use. Cheers Dusty hi dusty ive used vatafarm handrearing formula in the past which is what most breeders recommand but its had a massive price hike in the past year from $40 to $67 for a 2.5kg bag.im currently using Hagens tropican baby handrearing formula which is extremely good for its price.i payed $26 for 2x1kg bag posted to my door.i have a spare bag if you want toi give ago. cheers omar

    baby ringneck pics

    looks like you have 2 greens.your pair looks to be in very good health and feather.when you pull them out from the nest wait untill they have emptied most of there mothers food from there stomach before you start feeding them handrearing mix.may i ask what brand of handrearing mix your planning on feeding them.it also aint to late for the pair to have a second clatch so good luck with that aswell. cheers omar

    baby ringneck pics

    the first pair that layed 4 eggs is a pastleblue lacewing hen to a grey lacewing male.i pulled the babies out when theyre 3 days old.the second pair is a greenlacewing split blue hen to a pastle blue split lacewing male i also pulled the babies out when they were 3 days old.i only did that as it gives the pair of birds more of a chance of having a second and/or third clutch of eggs and im also getting them handreared by a full time handrearer as they require upto 6 feeds a day from the age of 3 days till theyre about 8days then it drops to 5 feeds a day till they reach the age of 15 days.the one im handrearing is 16 days old and is on 4 feeds a day and thats from the second pair so the colour is anyones guess.the chicks from those 2 pairs im getting handreared are going to be put back in the avairy once they fully weaned.the third pair is a lutino hen to a grey green male and they were pulled out of the nest when they were 14 days old as thats when i find it the best time to start handrearing them if you dont mind getting one or 2 nest out of your pair. dusty how old are the chicks. cheers omar
