Hi Gerry
Depending on the age of your Kaki you usuallly use a hand raising mix, a little like baby food. I hand raised my Kaki from about 2.5 to 3 weeks. You need to feed them about every 3 to 4 hours. This need to be done until about 5 to 6 weeks then you can start to introduce seed and fruit.

I was able to start with a syringe then go on to a spoon. Last feed should be around ten at night,they will be ok until morning.

Good luck. They are such characters. So much fun to watch feeding when they are little.

Cheers
Wendo <v>
