Lories and Lorikeets

Lories and Lorikeets are sweet, affectionate birds that are known for their comical antics and friendly personalities. In general, these birds are friendly, easy to socialize, and value interaction with their human keepers.

Hand-feed these young birds during their training. They will become acclimated to human touch and may be less nippy.


This bird is a highly intelligent bird that can learn tricks and other behaviors. Because it’s so smart, it is also a capable escape artist. Cage door locks are a must.

 

Lories and Lorikeets are long-lived, medium-sized parrots that get just over a foot long from beak to the tail feathers. They are busybodies that like to be in the midst of the action. And, like a young puppy, this bird encourages play whenever its favorite person is around. This bird is not shy and will let you know when it needs attention. If you're looking for a laid-back bird, this may not be the right bird for you.


Most Lories and Lorikeets do not get along with other bird species; they are incredibly territorial. They can become vicious with birds of their species and should never be left unsupervised with other birds.
