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 birds body will aid restraint

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

NB: Know the recommended volume to give by crop needle before use
