Hi all,

Getting my baby IRN tomorrow and wanted to know what the best hand feeding formula would be for IRN. I've handfed before with tropical and had no issues but I know that the fat content is different in each hand feeding formula where some are more suited for some birds types than others. What would be the ideal formula for IRNs? Any help would be welcome.

The breeder is using Kaytee Exact but I've heard some mixed reviews about it which is why I haven't used it before - so wanted to see if there is a better alternative?

I have used it, but I like the brand I’m sending you the link to. Much smoother and better than Kaytee. It looks like ZuPreem no longer makes theirs. I really liked theirs also, but here is what I am using now.
