Complete lorikeet feed supplement is a complete balanced diet enriched with omega 3 & 6, vitamins and minerals.

Native flowering plants furnish lorikeets with most of their nutrition. Pollen supplies the protein and other essential nutrients while energy is obtained from nectar. Protein requirement for lorikeets is lower than that of other parrots partly because the protein in pollen is high in essential amino acids.

A substitute lorikeet food must contain ingredients that provide suitable amounts of all essential nutrients. Many of the commercially available lorikeet food lack adequate levels of vitamins, minerals, and essential amino and fatty acids. Home made recipes can be just as nutritionally incomplete.

Complete Lorikeet is a completely balanced diet for feeding all lorikeets. Feed dry, or mix with warm water to a desired consistency. Remove soiled or uneaten food daily and replace with fresh food. Some lorikeets will load their drinking water with dry food so always ensure that fresh water is available.

Captive lorikeets: Cages birds tend to over-eat and become obese when offered an unlimited supply of food. It is healthier practice to establish your birds daily food requirement and feed that amount.

Breeding lorikeets: Feed 30% more than the non-breeeing requirement of Complete Lorikeet plus 1 level teaspoon of prepared Passwell Finch Soft Food per bird per day.

Wild lorikeets: Short term feeding wild lorikeets with nutritionally balanced food is not harmful. Non resident birds may become dependant on this food source and be at risk if induced to stay in an area where there is little natural food. Resident birds are at risk if the food offered does not contain all essential nutrients, as they source this readily available food at the expense of their natural diet. Do not overfeed wild birds. About 1 level teaspoon of Complete Lorikeet per bird per day is plenty.
