Nutrition is commonly neglected with pet birds. This is a common reason for many health problems. Lories and lorikeets have highly specialized dietary needs. Your bird's health depends on how well it is fed.
What does my Lory or Lorikeet naturally eat?
Lories and lorikeets eat nectar and pollen in the wild. They will also eat soft foods like fruits, berries, blossoms, and buds. They do not eat seeds in the wild.
What should I feed my Lory or Lorikeet?
There are a number of excellent commercial nectar and pollen substitutes available for lories and lorikeets. These products should be mixed in small quantities and changed at least twice daily, as they will spoil readily. These foods will spoil if not mixed fresh and put in clean dishes. Do not mix up more than needed for one feeding. Some commercial foods are Nekton-Lori, Quiko Lory, Avico Lory Life, and CeDe Lory food.
Parrot Treats is the New Zealand supplier for Nekton-Lori, one of these excellent foods for lorikeets.
Nekton-Lori is the liquid food for lorikeets and lories that naturally feed off flower nectar, plant sap, and pollen. The composition of Nekton-Lori's high-quality ingredients is balanced to mimic the natural diet of lorikeets and lories. It is one of the best wet food mixes for lorikeets and is a complete diet for these birds.
Nekton-Lori lorikeet food takes into account the special structure of these birds' digestive tracts, broken down proteins (present as amino acids) and focuses on the direct availability of easy to digest carbohydrates. An optimum mixture is the results of over 100 individual components supplemented by specific fatty acids and enriched with all essential substances (vitamins, trace elements) as well as minerals and major elements. No other feed has to be supplied. Do not supplement with other vitamins while feeding Nekton-Lori as it is already fortified with vitamins and minerals.
Do not give to sensitive species of lorikeet (eg, plum-faced lorikeet), instead they would need NEKTON-Nektar-Plus.
Dosage 10g (1 measuring spoon) of NEKTON-Lori in 100 mL of lukewarm (25°C) water. A measuring spoon is included in each bottle of NEKTON-Lori. 10g of NEKTON-Lori corresponds to one measuring spoon.
Do not use a mixer or whisk to mix the lorikeet food, as the vitamins can be mechanically damaged in this way.
Only serve the amount of nutrient solution that your bird eats in one day.
Keep offering fruit and vegetables as that will help with "gnawing" to keep their beaks short and offer variety to their daily activity and foraging. Nutritional requirements are completely fulfilled by Nekton-Lori.You may find that your lory or lorikeet prefers softer slightly overripe fruits (but ensure there is no rot on the fruits). Cut them into manageable pieces depending on the size of the bird and offer a fruit salad. Offer fruits and vegetables in a separate dish to the Nekton-Lori.
In hot temperatures, the food can become acidified. Keep containers clean and use fresh clean water. We recommend feeding half as much twice a day to prevent spoilage.
NEKTON-Lori lorikeet food should be stored dry and out of sunlight, between 15° and 25°C.
Do not store in the fridge as the additional moisture in the fridge can damage the food additives and clump up the powder.
