    And do we need to mix it with water? It seems kind of thick, Also how often should we feed him?

    Thank you again... I know I am asking many questions and these questions may have been answered. I have tried the search with not much success [​IMG]

    how old is the chick?

    for ones that I have to force feed I mix the egg yolk with a little sugar water with vitamins or electrolyte water.. i make it thin enough that I can get a drop or two in it's beak .. but not so runny that it makes the bird choke.. for older birds that will peck at food I don't add any water.. just crumble the yolk and hold the dish to their beak
