Psittacus Lori Diet Maintenance Formula can be offered dry or with added water to adult parrots of the Loriinae sub-family. If prepared with water, we recommend using only a small amount to ensure the food is not diluted excessively.
It is a complete food which is very rich in sugars and contains dehydrated apply and whole egg. Whenever chicks are in the nest we recommend that the breeding pairs have Frugivorous Neonatal Hand-Feeding or Lory Special Hand-Feeding (depending on the chicks’ age) also available. (Listed separately).
As a guideline, these birds consume from 8g – 16g of dry Lory Diet per 100g of body weight. Environmental ambient temperature influences intake significantly.
Analytical Constituents of Psittacus Lori Diet Maintenance Formula:
crude protein 13.0%, crude fat 5.0%
Maintenance Formulas are ideal for pet birds and breeding birds outside of the breeding season.
They are a complete diet formula with each pellet containing a full complement of nutrients. This negates the common problem of picky feeding as the pellet and its nutrients are consumed as a complete package. Maintenance formulas can constitute 100% of the bird’s diet, although other foods such as fresh fruit and vegetables can be used to enhance dietary variety, enrichment, training and natural behaviour.
