Hi I am hand rearing a baby rainbow lorikeet called Laura who fell out of her nest. (DNA testing proves she's female) We found her when she was 3-4 weeks old now she's 7-8 weeks old. she's recently started flying for the first time!

I keep coming back to this post to look at how cute she is. Her feet look so big for such a little thing! I've never seen a baby rainbow lorikeet before. :)

Me want. :rofl:

What a cutie!

So is this a wild bird that will be released? Or is it a pet bird?

Without proper rehabilitation, I would not recommend releasing her as you have raised her from such a young age. Is there a rehab centre near you who could help you? If not, maybe start thinking of her more as a companion bird :)

She´s absolutely gorgeous :swoon:

She is probably imprinting and you and might not be a good candidate for release.

She is the cutest. I agree you may be better off keeping her as she is so young. It will be hard to get her to a state that she can be released

Looks like you got yourself a buddy! Lol. I think you’ll find the advice you’ll be given is going to be not to release her after raising her.
