Shep’s is a powdered lorikeet food offering the bird food without being mixed with water which should be fed in conjunction with the wet food fruits and vegetables.

The base ingredient in most recipes was Rice Flour and Baby Rice Cereal as opposed to Wheat Flour, which was used in other diets. With added advantage of Rice based cereal being that the dry mix would not spoil or sour in hot, or humid weather.

Commercial Egg & Biscuit mixes in Australia were based in Breadcrumbs mixed with Custard powder, with the occasional inclusion of Poppy seeds. These commercial mixes were found to contain no actual biscuit base nor did they contain any Egg Powder, as a result Shep’s decided to manufacture their own quality Egg & Biscuit which includes genuine ingredents (Whole Egg Powder and “Nice” biscuit base).
