Specifically designed to be fed to Lories as a maintenance diet!
* This healthy, nutritious Lory food contains no added colours, fragrances, and no animal by products
* Lower in sugar to help reduce the incidence of yeast infections
* Formulated for your Lory’s specific needs by avian nutritionist, Tom Roudybush
This nutritionally complete, all-natural Lory nectar diet may be served dry, moistened, or as a nectar. . It’s also great for hand-feeding. The diet is lower in sugar than other brands of nectars. Less sugar is helpful to reduce incidence of yeast infections that Lories are prone to due to the high sugar diets they are commonly fed. Contains 15% protein and 3% fat.
Roudybush Lory Nectar has been fed to a variety of Lories as a maintenance diet. It can be fed dry as it comes from the bag or as a nectar mixed with about one part dry nectar to about three parts water. The amount of water used can vary depending on the amount of nectar eaten and the amount of water in other food in the Lory’s diet. The food should be changed and the feeding vessel cleaned at least twice a day. During warm weather wet food should be changed every four hours. Dry food can remain in the feeder for days providing it does not become contaminated with feces, dirt or refuse and providing it does not become wet. Wet or contaminated food should be discarded and replaced with fresh dry food. Clean fresh water should be available to Lories at all times.
Roudybush Lory Nectar can be fed in conjunction with a variety of other foods. Some of the food that can be added to the diet are fruits, vegetables, treats or Roudybush Maintenance Pellets (item #30186). When enough Roudybush Maintenance Pellets are fed, droppings usually become more solid, eliminating the spraying of droppings that occurs in Lories fed nectar exclusively. Do not supplement with vitamins or minerals.

Remember to stay within the categories when shopping for your fur kids. I have done extensive research on each animal to ensure that only safe and recommended items are available in their respective categories.
Some items you may think will be safe for one species, might actually not be, so I urge customers to keep to the categories :)
