Wombaroo Bird Food - Lorikeet/Honey Eater
Wombaroo Lorikeet & Honyeater Food is a complete, balanced diet for all nectar-eating species. This includes lorikeets, lories, honeyeaters, wattlebirds, miners, sunbirds & hummingbirds.
- Dissolves in water to make a nectar that mimics the natural diet.
- Liquid stays in solution, so no separation of nutritional components.
- Low fibre and starch content, so excellent for digestive health.
- Moderate iron and vitamin A levels to minimise excessive iron storage.
Making up Lorikeet & Honeyeater Food
To make 1 litre: Mix 300g of powder with 800mL of warm water.
To make 50mL: Mix 15g of powder (approx. 3 teaspoons) with 40mL of warm water.
Add half the water to the powder first and mix until dispersed. Then add the remaining water and mix thoroughly. Prepared food can be stored in the fridge for a day or can be frozen for up to 2 weeks. It is useful to make-up larger quantities and store it frozen in small portions (eg ice cube trays), so that the required daily feed volumes can be easily thawed out.
Feeding Captive Birds
Use as the maintenance diet for captive lorikeets, lories & honeyeaters. Do not overfeed as this is wasteful and may cause obesity in captive birds. Birds should be offered fresh fruit and blossom daily.
Available in 300g & 1.5kg sizes.
