Oh man... they need a few more feathers before I can tell you how cute they are. :laugh:
What! Look at the little baby beaks! Naked macaws are just as cute!

They're very cute!

I would be inclined to offer a different kind of bedding - a deep layer of aspen shavings or similar. Paper towel doesn't support their weight enough and can cause problems like splayed legs.

Anyone has added papaya concentrate and Bene Bac to the formula? The female is taking more time to empty the crop. Any advise?

The temp is 40 c and 1 to 2 as per the formula manufacturer recommended. The male is like a horse but she is a little slower

Has anyone experienced a situation where one of the babies empties the crop much slower than the rest. What’s your advise? Will Adding proenzyme help? The babie is in perfect health and very energetic. Just takes longer to empty the crop

Hi there, I am wondering if there is a chance to buy a book where you got this pic from? Could you please let me know ? Thank you so much.
There are very few of those second hand books available but if you google it you might still find at least one of the three books that were for sale a few months back still for sale. When I looked they all were in the $400 USD range
