As part of my job I have almost finished hand rearing 4 rainbow lorikeets. They're going to be put up for sale soon at the shop I work at and it'll be hard to watch them go, especially one in particular who just has soooo much personality. I want to purchase him but my entire house is carpeted. How realistic would it be to try to 'lorikeet-poop proof' the carpeted area around a generously sized cage? If I put a LARGE mat around the cage area and then installed a transparent shower curtain to go around all four sides, do you think this would be enough to stop the poop squirting at night? Obviously during the day I would be able to keep a pack of wipes handy to clean up the messes that happen every 10-15 minutes or so. I have no problem running around cleaning up after him since I already do that with my one messy parrot. I also already know all the best tricks for cleaning poop off the carpet, haha. Anyone have any first hand experience with lorikeets and carpet? Any advice or thoughts? I might just have to let the idea go and accept that lorikeets and carpet don't mix.
