Hi everyone,
Have a 9 week rainbow lorikeet, she has been hand reared and is soo affectionate. Parents had different birds over the years but first time bird owner myself. I'll likely be asking millions of questions. So scared to get something wrong and with everything u hear different things on the same topics.
I'm excited and scared all at the same time.

I'm interested in knowing what the different noises are and what they mean. Tried to watch videos but nothing really that discussed the meanings.

Is there any really big no no's or any big do's that I need to know. I'm learning as I go and trying to do lots of research. Iv kitchen paper and pigeon loft grit in the bottom of her cage currently as was advised this will kill any bacteria or disease in the poop, tho scared she might try to eat it.

Thanks all

Hello and welcome! As different members sign in you should get lots of help. your baby is so pretty! :heart:

Just remember we have members from around the world so some take longer to come if they just went to bed. :lol: I think there might also be a forum thread for lorikeets which is a good place to start…

probably the only advice I have is don't feed them food with iron in it and don't feed them seeds because it destroys the bristles on their tongue. I just have puppy pads or newspaper in the bottom of my lorikeets cages :) your baby is so cute!!!
