    I've never heard of it but I can look. Where do you buy it? Is it available at feed stores?

    In the US it's sold at places like petsmart and petco. Your best chance of finding it would be at a place that sells caged birds.

    I have nothing that looks like that. Only plastic tubes, syringes, everything necessary for an
    IV. She's so tiny I'm afraid I'll choke her if I try

    I checked my tubes, I don't have anything near small enough to go down her throat.

    I'll take a picture, just a sec, sorry this is all new to me I think I'm re adding messages ect. I called the pet store, they only have fruit based baby feed. Would that work?

    It has to be the powdered and feeding formula.

    The pet store doesn't have it, I'd have to check with the vet clinic in the next largest town.
