The Most Nutritious Diet Available for Lories and Lorikeets. Twice As Concentrated As Other Lorikeet Nectar Brands, It Makes More And Saves. This diet is especially formulated to provide these special birds with all of the nutritional requirements needed for optimal health, beautiful plumage and successful breeding. With the assistance of an avian nutritionist this diet was formulated to meet the specific nutritional needs of Lories and Lorikeets. Rainbow Landing Nectar diet is one with the lowest in iron content found on the market, it contains no added Vitamin A and only the freshest of ingredients. Where possible, natural, organic and fair trade ingredients have been sourced out to be included. With a professionally recommended calcium to phosphorus ratio, fresh bee pollen, and the supplementation of vitamins, minerals and amino acids, it is the most nutritious diet available for members of the family, Loriidae.
Rainbow Landing Nectar mixes easily with cool water. No nutrient-damaging hot water is needed. Rainbow Landing Nectar also stays fully suspended much longer, so that they will be able to get the full balance of nutrients from it.
Rainbow Landing Nectar is concentrated and mixing at a volume ratio of 10 parts water to 1 part Rainbow Landing Nectar, rather than the 5 to 1 of other formulas. It is fine, however, to reduce the amount of water if you find that the birds prefer it a little thicker.
If feeding in a nectar form estimated intake of about 6 fluid ounces (about 170 ml) per bird per day, divided by the number of feedings. This amount will vary by species, time of year and your birds own preferences. Feel free to experiment as everything in Rainbow Landing is good for your birds.
For each feeding, measure out the necessary water for the number of birds and add the powdered nectar to that. Blend it thoroughly to ensure that it is completely mixed.
As with all your bird supplies it is important to keep all bowls and mixing utensils clean.
Some nectar customers prefer to offer their birds this diet in its dry form. If you choose to do this ensure that there is plenty of fresh water nearby.
As Lories are sensitive to iron, you do want to be sure that the water does not have excessive iron. Check with your supplier. Most tap waters are fine, but filtered or bottled water might be better.

History behing Rainbow Landing
As pioneers in the establishment of interactive Lorikeet exhibits, the folks at Rainbow Landing provided the first continuous lorikeet feeding experience open to the public for the San Diego Zoo's Safari Park beginning in the summer of 1994. During the following years they developed Lorikeet hand-feeding exhibits for Zoological institutions both in the U.S. and in Europe and it was necessary to offer the best diet available to the birds. Rainbow Landing was born dedicated exclusively to this, and to the keeping, breeding, training, and maintenance of large flocks of these unique birds on a year-round basis.
This advance in Loriidae nutrition is now available to all Lorikeet and Lory owners and keepers. From the pet owner with a single bird, to the world-class zoo with multiple populations, there is an economical and proper-size package for your need.
