Question

Feeding needle for sparrows


Hi,

I want to use a curved metal small feeding needle for feeding eggling sparrows formula. I don't know what size to get. Can anyone help me? I have been using a syringe with cannula tip, but want something with more control of the liquid.

Thank you!

Bronwyn

Check out online "Chris's squirrels and more", they have curved blunt ball nose feeding needles stainless steal. Just asking why you need this for sparrows, I thought the gaped to be fed?

Yes, they do gape, unless something is wrong. I feed them a FoNS formula for the first few days. Therefore, I use a syringe.

Chris's squirrels does not specify which feeding needle to use for eggling passerines. But I think they have an "Ask A Rehabber" function.

Thank you!
