Question What do you love (and not love) about your Lory?

I am deciding on a bird and getting opinions from owners on the species I'm considering. I just want to know what your Lory does that makes you smile, and what he does that you don't care for. All answers will be appreciated. Thanks!

Re: What do you love (and not love) about your Lory?

well my Lorikeet is the funniest bird I love to watch him play and play with him! He surprises me every day! Downsides are he is MESSY imagine dumping water all over everything within a foot of the cage thats what its like cause he eat nectar and his droppings are liquid he shoots them out far too like a water gun and often! Also he will randomly attack me for no reason his bites hurt a lot! But he can also be so sweet and loving to me right after, I have been told this is normal, given all the hard things that come with him I love him and wouldnt trade him for the world! But it is a huge step in bird ownership much harder than a conure in my opinion.

Re: What do you love (and not love) about your Lory?

My lory has a different shaped beak [and he doesnt hurt ] he sticks his tongue in my ear LOL. We thought he would be a good family pet [ they used him for school demonstations.] Hes very people accepting . His downfall ,the diet ,the mess and aggressive towards other birds. [Find that perfect lory ] I contacted a lady [or tried ] in Buffalo NY that had them on her site [I was calling about a 2 for myself ] but thought of you when I saw their picture. She never returned my call was not impressed.

I'd love to know the lady as I know alady in buffalo that has a lory up for adoption to interested in if it is her..

I am not a lory owner but I have expirences almost all species of captive birds and the lories have had the most complaints about there messy diet. I haven't heard t much bad about them but that and the occasional apparently aggresive lory, but I kinda find that more to be the owners then anything so all in all the mess! But all of them are messy lories just have a sticky mess lol

Re: What do you love (and not love) about your Lory?

The best: Her personality. She plays and plays and PLAYS. Such a cheeky thing, and always full of energy and 'go'. Also- not sure if this is a breed specific or personality specific thing, but Olive has adapted to new situations very very quickly! A very clever little bird.
She was raised with a batch of Conures, so she's quite friendly to other birds.

The bad: Her diet. Takes a bit of organising to provide the dry mix, wet mix (which only stays in the cage for an hour or two) and fresh fruit/veg.

I don't mind the cleaning too much. The splatters are very water soluble, and wash off very easily. Just need lots of newspaper and a floor/wall cover!
