OH! I didn't know they sold things like that! We've always just used aquarium airline since we have stacks of it left over (easy to sterilise too, and we can round the edges easily with the gas stove). I have been thinking about tube feeding, but since she seems to be eating on her own I have been holding off on it. We have some Exact hand-feeding formula that we used when attempting to save Pinky (before we knew it was cancer she had) that is high protein etc, would that be acceptable or should we be making a mash with the pellets and warm water? We ran into clogging problems with pellet-mash last time, but perhaps the 20cc syringe opening is just too narrow, and the 60cc with the catheter tip might be better.
These are the syringes and tubes that we have at the moment:
Also, thank you very much for all your help and your offer of more. You are most kind!
What you have would be fine, but you might want to get a bigger syringe, 'cause your hen can probably take way more than 20ml. As for the food, I use Kaytee. If you think her crop can hold 60ml, give her 40-60 ml of warmed water with a little sugar, then repeat in 60-90 min if her crop has cleared.
