What should I feed my Lorikeet?
Lorikeets are nectar feeders. In the wild they eat the nectar of native flowers like bottlebrushes and grevilleas. They're also known to eat some greens and fruits.
Fresh food and water should be given daily as the fresh food will spoil quickly and lose its vitamins and minerals.
It is recommended to feed them a Lorikeet Complete Feed, whether is be a dry or wet mix. This should be fed daily along with Fresh fruits such as apples, pears, strawberries, grapes, melon, peaches and cherries as the preferred choices. Please avoid acidic fruits like orange, lemon, tangerine and mandarins as they up set their stomachs. Greens like lettuce and celery sticks are also favorites.
Fresh water should always be provided especially if you are feeding the dry lorikeet feed.
Other foods to avoid are avocado, chocolate and caffeine as they are toxic to lorikeets.
We supply two different brands of lorikeet feed. They can be found here
