Find out more about Lovebird food with our Lovebird feeding guide.

A Lovebird’s diet needs to be as mixed as possible. The base diet, approx 60-80%, should be pelleted or complete food, with the remainder being seed and sprouting seed, fruits, nuts, vegetables and other treats.

We’d also encourage you to place food in foraging toys for your Lovebird to find with their amazing foraging skills, as well as placing some in their feeding dish.

Complete and Pelleted Food

American company Lafeber have developed NutriBerries with 40 essential ingredients your Lovebird needs. There are Original, Sunny Orchard and Tropical to choose from. Their small berry shape makes them easy to hold and fun to eat.

ZuPreem Natural is an enticing mix of colours, shapes and flavours for a fun eating experience.

Sprouting Seed / Soaking Seed

Take the time to prepare these seeds to give your Lovebird even more of the goodness nature intended. Soak them for a couple of days, rinsing occasionally, then serve them with your bird’s daily diet.

Please Note

We would always advise buying the smallest bag/pack possible to trial your Parrot with. It can take some time and persistence to introduce a new food. It may be worth having a second bowl of water next to your Lovebird’s food bowl, as many enjoy dunking their food before eating it. Always have fresh water available.
