Neocare is Vetafarm's most advanced hand-rearing formula. It was formulated by Avian Veterinarians to provide optimal nutrition, growth and development for all species of baby birds.

This product contains fresh Australian ingredients and is fortified with all necessary vitamins, minerals, calcium and amino acids for growing bones, organ function and strong feather development.

Neocare contains both pobiotics to promote healthy gut flora and pre-digestives to increase gut efficiency and ensure maximum nutrient absorption.

The extrusion process is used to create Neocare for safety and increased digestibility.

Feeding Preparation:

Always mix Neocare fresh before each feed.

Do not re-use or refrigerate pre-mixed formula.

Never use a microwave to heat formula as it can create hot spots and cause crop burns.

Always use a fork to mix. This ensures proper mixing and consistency. Do not use a spoon.

Formula should always be between 38-41°C when feeding to avoid crop burns and indigestion.

Neonate / Transition Feeding

  1. Always start with a very runny mix. Add 2 small level scoops of Neocare formula to a mixing cup, followed by 1 large scoop and 1 small scoop of boiling water.

  2. Mix thoroughly using a fork for 30 seconds or until an even consistency is achieved. It is very important to ensure that you mix using a fork, using the back side of the fork to push through and stir the mixture.

  3. Ensure the formula is a smooth consistency and that there are no dry lumps. Check the temperature, and then feed.

  4. Over the next 48 hours, gradually thicken formula until the regular mixing level (outlined below) is reached.

Feeding Frequency

The first feed of the day should be approximately 5-6am, and the last feed between 10-11pm. Once every 24 hours, usually at the start of the day, the crop should be allowed to empty completely. The age and species of birds being raised affects the amount and frequency of feeds, so it is important to research individual requirements thoroughly before you begin. Always record your baby’s weight each day before feeding.
