· Be VERY NICE to your WIFE (especially if she feeds and handraises for you!)
· Do not give any birds or animals chocolate or avocado (give chocolate to wife instead).
· Your bird needs vitamins and calcium regularly.
· Most birds enjoy a variety of fruit and vegetables.
· Lorikeets love native flowers such as Bottle Brush and Grevillias.
· Talk to your Lorikeets often if you would like them to talk back to you!
· Female Lorikeets talk just as much as Male Lorikeets do (imagine that!)
· Lots of clean drinking water must always be available … Lorikeets love to bath in their water bowls.
· We feed our lorikeets Lori Dry as well as the above
· Wet mix is not essential for Lorikeets, but if you do provide this to your lorikeets, it is a good idea to take the bowl out after a couple of hours as bacteria breeds quickly especially in the warmer weather.
· Rainbow Lorikeets can breed all year round, they normally lay 1-2 eggs or sometimes 3 in a clutch.
· Rainbow Lorikeet eggs are usually incubated for approximately 24 days.
· Rainbow Lorikeets can be kept in a colony environment, but breed well as pairs, in individual aviaries.
· Rainbow Lorikeets breed from about 12 months of age.
· Rainbows, Red Collars and Scaleys need to be either surgically sexed or DNA sexed to determine their sex.
