I have doubts about feeding Emerald, my female bird unknown

Would giving my pet hummingbird Quiko Lori food be okay or would she get sick?

I will explain how you can prepare the food for your hummingbird.

Mix one part of sugar for four parts of water. Heat the mix because the sugar has to dissolve in the water. If you want to get food for more days, then, you should boil the mix but with the heat very slowly. Then, the mix can keep during maximum four or five days in the fridge.

Put the solution in a red recipient because the red colour is attractive for the hummingbirds. They will go to suckle the solution.

Check every day the red recipient because it can not have any mould and/or dirt. It would be dangerous for the hummingbirds.

If your house has garden, you can seed flowers for the hummingbird, for example:mallow or sage.

The hummingbirds need to feed insects, too. You can capture ants. They are easy for finding them.

I hope that your hummingbird can grow up very happy,

Kind regards,
