Premium foods attract a premium price. We want the best for our birds, so we stock internationally recognised best bird foods. Nekton is made in and shipped from Germany. Harrison's is made and shipped from the USA.
If you think about it in price per meal, it may not seem as expensive. Nekton-Lori recommends 10 g of food per day per lorikeet. A jar of 750 g is therefore 75 meals. For one lorikeet, that's less than a dollar per day!
Harrison's High Potency Fine 455 g is $33. Our African Grey gets through that bag in about three weeks. That's about $1.57 a day.
