How to Use For Bird Medication/Feeding:

1. Hold the bird as shown, with the tip of your thumb under the bottom bill. The bird should be comfortably restrained, do not use excess force. For large birds a towel around the bird’s body will aid restraint.

2. Allow the bird to bite the needle ball, then gently roll the ball over the tongue into the back of the mouth. Align the needle with your thumb.

3. Using a to-and-fro twirling motion gently pass the needle into the crop. The ball of the needle will be felt along your thumb as it moves into the crop.

4. Administer solution from attached syringe. Remove crop needle gently.

NOTE: Know the recommended volume to give by crop needle before administration.
