Birdie bread should be fine. After all most lorikeet mixes are made up of things that are basically ground seed. My mix has as a basis various types of the Farex type baby cereals in it. One of them is Mixed Grain and Banana. I also use Semolina in the mix which is only ground up wheat. As long as the grains are ground to a powder or flour like consistancy they should be fine. It is just the whole seeds that Lorikeets have a problem with as they cannot digest it properly in the whole form. In the wild they love to eat the tiny little seeds from the Casuarina tree (commonly called the She Oak). They will actually drop the seed pods on the road, wait for a car to run over them to break them open and then eat the seeds. But these seeds are extremely tiny.
