Making up Lorikeet & Honeyeater Food
To make 100mL: Mix 3 scoops of powder (30g) with 80mL of warm water.
To make 1 Litre: Mix 300g of powder with 800mL 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.
It is desirable to keep lorikeets and honeyeaters in large aviaries planted with native flowering shrubs. This provides birds with an additional source of pollen, nectar and insects. Prior to and during the breeding season birds should be given fruit and either Wombaroo Insectivore Rearing Mix or Passwell Finch Soft Food.
Supplementing Wild Birds
Wombaroo Lorikeet & Honeyeater Food is an ideal supplement for attracting native birds into the garden. Set up an elevated feeding station on a pole or suspended from the branch of a tree. Provide the prepared food in a shallow, glazed bowl or feeding tube. Ration daily feed to no more than 10mL per lorikeet or 5mL per honeyeater. Always limit the amount of food offered to reduce dependence on the food. Remove the bowl after feeding and thoroughly clean it - disease transmission can be a problem at feed stations. Be aware that when you attract birds into your garden you may also be attracting predators, so steps may need to be taken to avoid this problem.
