Wombaroo Insectivore Rearing Mix 250gm

Wombaroo Insectivore Rearing Mix is a complete food for rearing and supplementing insectivorous and carnivorous birds. These species require a high proportion of protein in their diet.

Birds that eat mature insects, such as flies, moths and beetles, should not be fed large numbers of immature insects like caterpillars, grubs and pupae. On a dry weight basis the composition of mature insects is about 65% protein, 10% fat and 20% carbohydrate. The protein contains all essential amino acids and the fat is highly unsaturated. Captive birds are commonly fed the larval stage of insects such as meal worms and fly pupae. These are not good food substitutes for birds that eat mature insects. Larval stage insects can contain up to 40% fat which can significantly dilute the ratio of nutrients to energy in the diet.

Wombaroo Insectivore Rearing Mix is a complete food for rearing young insectivorous or carnivorous birds. It is also used as an excellent breeding supplement for adult birds


Key Features

  • Contains 52% protein, with the full complement of amino acids.
  • Suitable for all insect or meat eating species including magpies, kookaburras, birds of prey, seabirds, waders, wrens & robins.
  • Enriched with omega-3&6, carotenoids, vitamins and minerals to enhance feather condition and chick health.
  • Can be used as an ideal live-food substitute or high protein boost for all birds.
  • Contains added taurine, an essential nutrient for growing passerine chicks.

Wombaroo Insectivore Rearing Mix can be used as a supplement to boost protein, vitamins & minerals in meat, fish & egg diets. The product can also be mixed with water to make soft pellets or liquid slurry for hand-rearing or assist feeding. Suggested feeding guidelines are presented below. Do not add vitamin, mineral or concentrated food supplements to these diets as this may seriously alter the balance of nutrients. Prepare food fresh daily.

To feed as Meat Mix

Mix 10g (2 teaspoons) of Insectivore Rearing Mix per 20g of minced meat or fish.

A little moisture may be necessary to moisten the preparation. Always use good quality meat as a base.

To feed with Hard-boiled Egg

Mix 20g (2 tablespoons) with 1 mashed Hard-boiled egg (50g).

Mash the egg with a fork and then slowly add the Insectivore Rearing Mix and gently turn into a crumbly mass.

This is an ideal supplement for softbills such as wrens, robins and chats as well as waterbirds including plovers, rails and waders. Mix with live food such as mealworms, termites or fly pupae to encourage intake. Many canary, finch and parrot breeders also offer this soft food mix to their nesting birds.

To feed with Hard-boiled Egg



To feed as pellets

Mix 10g (2 heaped teaspoons) of Insectivore Rearing Mix with 6mL of warm water.

Slowly add the water and mix to a putty-like consistency. Break small pieces from the prepared mix and roll into pellets for feeding, using tweezers. This mix is essentially a 'dry' food so birds should be offered water by mouth when feeding pellets.

Use pellets to feed orphaned or sick birds including magpies, ravens, kookaburras and tawny frogmouths.

To feed as pellets


To feed as a liquid slurry

Add 10g (2 heaped teaspoons) of Insectivore Rearing Mix with 15mL of warm water.

Slowly add water and mix to make a slurry of the required consistency. Let the mix stand for 2 minutes to absorb all the water. If too thick, add a little more water and continue mixing. Feed using a spoon or syringe and tube. The mix should be fluid enough to pass through the syringe hub when tube feeding. The mixture should be fed at about 30ºC.

Use as an "assist feeding" formula for sick and orphaned birds. Particularly young altricial chicks, or older birds that are unable to feed themselves.

 To feed as a liquid slurry


To feed Raptors & Seabirds (whole-body eaters)

Stuff 5g (1 teaspoon) of Insectivore Rearing Mix per 20g of whole fish, mice or day old chicks fed. Cavities may be stuffed using a syringe.
