I have a 5 yr. old green napped lory. His name is Ziggy. I got him when he was 7 mo. old. He's quite a handful. While he is usually very playful & loving, he can also become overstimulated & go into attack mode. I think these birds do best with a fairly calm person. My bird says: come here, give me a kiss, get outta here, night night,wanna go outside, is it good, umm, yummy! He says much more, too much to list here.

I have a green naped rainbow lorikeet. He is a boy and his name is Bogan(as in westie). Me and my girlfriend decided to call him Bogan because we found him in the wild being attacked by a ferrel cat. He was all bloody and disgusting. He had lice, no shoes and he was homeless. We took him in without a second thought and now 3 years on we have taught him to talk. He is very good and says things like: Bogan, ya mum, sexy thang, i have nits, and lot's more.

My boyfriend found a young Rainbow Lorikeet on the road and we hand raised him. We had never had much to do with the breed before and were pleasantly surprised to find him to be extremely playful and entertaining. More like a kitten in his playful antics, we have developed a really close bond and he offers a great amount of companionship. He has learned to say quite a lot and mumbles and whistles all the time. They can be noisy and need lots of attention but it has all been extremely worthwhile. Also they become attached to the person in the household of the opposite sex. So our male bird prefers me to my boyfriend, though this isn't that much of a problem, he's just more cuddly with me. I definitely recommend these birds as pets.

I have a male rainbow lorikeet named Teeko and a male Eclectus named Tongo. Amazingly, they love each other! Teeko is a woderful bird that has filled my life with joy. I got him from a great breeder as a baby and he is now 7 years old. He is quite a jabber-mouth. He can say
I love you!
Sweet, sweet love!
Up, up to mama?
And much more. His favorite food would have to be fresh, moist pear and yummy apples. He loves them. He enjoys playing in his 2+2+2 foot cage and his big, BIG playground.
Teeko is a great bird, despite his special diet. I love m little guy.

we (as my family), have two rainbow lorikeets and they are called dick and fanny. they live outside in there cage which is 8 foot tall and about 3 feet wide so they are in a big cage. we talk to them everyday and play and feed them everyday. Dick can say things like g'day and how are ya and what ya doin..its really cool. Fanny is still figuring out how to talk. they love to talk to the wild birds, see all the things they havent seen before. we have had them for about 4 months. they are about 1yr old. i love them, they are so cute and special to our family. cya...liana

We have a 1 year old rainbow lorikeet, his name is Jerry! Jerry loves to kiss people and give the occasional bite. He can say a few different words. But most of all he loves to sing.... We love our bird i think he is very smart he does poo on command and loves the attention we give to him. I look forward to the many years we will have together.

I have a 26 years old Green-naped Rainbow Lorikeet (Peppo). He has had a few homes and came to me just recently. He's the most special bird I have ever owned. He hasn't always been treated as nicely as now, so when he came he had plucked himself and wasn't very easy to handle. But now he is much better and he loves to cuddle. He talks, says his own name, and talks in his sleep.

Im a parrot lover and have a few asian parrot species. I love my lories very much. I have 4 pairs of lories in my backyard aviary. I have also a lot of african love birds, several pairs of cockatiels, blue naped and blue backed parrots,a pair of rose ringnecked parakeets, pair of umbies, and a pair of eclectus r. vosmaeri. But the most striking parrots that i have are my rainbow lories. All of my friends admired the colors
of their feathers and their abilities to entertain by doing acrobatic treks. I enjoy reading your writings about parrots. So i hope you like my message about my feathered friends!
