"Hello: I recently posted a very detailed articleon the passing of the most beautiful, intelligent, and loving pet I could ever imagine having. Remember Jammy? I recently observed in a local pet shop, lorys feeding on pellets, according to the owner especially made for lorys. These pellets were dry, and the baby was feeding on them; I was astounded by this. I have read just recently that the nectar diets are the best because of the special physiology of this particular bird. It was stated that a pelleted diet could result in major consequences regarding the health of the lory. The lory needs a moist diet to properly digest and eliminate. The pelleted diet, I believe, implemented in the pet shops and the like, is being used for the purpose of making the droppings more solid as those of other parrot species. Of course, this would be appealing to unsuspecting folks shopping for a pet bird. Jammy, my beloved rainbow lory, passed away at 20+ years of age. Jammy was fed the Necton Lory Powder formula. He absolutely loved this diet. The only difference is that Jammy chose to mix the powder with water instead of feeding on the nectar in fluid form. Jammy received his vitamins and minerals in this diet, and he lived a happy and beautiful life. Also, Jammy received fresh fruits and veges each day. Be VERY careful when choosing a diet for your lorys. There are several really good diets available to you. I believe there is also a diet called "Lory Life". Do NOT use the dry pellets; I believe this will cause a very dangerous and life-threatening situation, and ultimately shorten the life of your lory, as well as possibily causing great physical pain. Well, several weeks have passed since Jammy met with the Lord; however, I know he was a happy little fella, and he enjoyed his life almost until the end. As far as I am concerned, there is a BIG void in our lifes and a strange stillness in this house which has to be corrected. Jammy will always be ALIVE in my heart forever; I am sure you lory people understand. God bless you and your pets and stay happy and healthy. Susan Saleeby "
