    Hi Everyone,
    I'm hoping for some advice. We have a pet rainbow lorikeet that we adopted about 3 years ago. He is inside at night but has an outside cage during the day. Lately he has had wild birds coming and landing on his cage - often the same bird ( I think a girl). As I've read that rainbows mate for life, I'm trying to work out how to stop an attachment happening as he won't be able to take care of her in the wild.

    Any advice?

    Thanks for your help!

    I wouldn’t be worried about the wild one getting attached I’d be more worried about your lorikeet catching any diseases off them.
