    I do feel strongly that the spoon is not natural and I have that
    right.

    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.
