I do feel strongly that the spoon is not natural and I have that
Too many don't check temp of formula and I am an advocate for
checking water temp and again after formula is mixed and temp
maintained with putting the container in a crock of hot water. I
did a check on my wrist as some say is okay for an experiment
and the formula was at 120 degrees. Did that so I could know
for myself that checking is so important.
Also tried the spoon but nope it isn't for me nor for my birds.
As to species I have fed the quakers, tiels, lovies and keets
have thrived here. My daughters CAG was fed with a larger
syringe and that was a hoot.
The way I collar a baby with my left hand leaves my pointer
finger at an angle to support the syringe that is in my right
hand, therefore the syringe is not resting on the beak. Pretty
simple to me.
My facts are straight. The 'many' babys that I have fed, cuddled
and socialized are proof of that. They've grown into wonderful,
non screaming, adults.
Hope you don't attack everyone here this way. There's some nice
people here, including me.
