Meet Lori and her BFF, Fava Bean!
Lori is a Rainbow Lorikeet who hatched on March 7, 2019. This little ball of fluff is
packed full of energy and her personality is as colorful as her feathers. She will
have you giggling in no time. She loves to wrestle, and wrestle… and wrestle
some more. This busy little bird is good at entertaining herself in her cage with
her toys, but she would MUCH rather be with you. In fact, she would rather be
playing with you or on you. She’s adorable and lovable and will become fast
friends with anyone she meets. She doesn’t bite, but she nibbles when she plays.
Fava Bean is Lori’s little sidekick. He was hatched in April 2019 and is believed
to be a male, though his DNA has not been tested. He is a Dominant Red Factor
Green Cheek Conure, which is evident by his bashful red belly. He is a little more
reserved than his bestie, Lori. Fava Bean is a sweet little guy. He will readily step
up and has yet to bite. He takes a little longer to trust new people, but once he
does, he’ll be your little snuggle bunny. While Lori is flipping around in your
hands, Fava Bean will be cuddled into your neck.
The two love to preen each other as soon as they are together. They will wrestle
and tumble and will sometimes bicker. But, don’t let Fava Bean’s small stature
fool you. If Lori is being too aggressive, Fava Bean will show her who’s boss.
Neither of them are very noisy as far as parrots go. Fava Bean rarely makes a
peep unless he’s expressing his annoyance with Lori. Lori can squeak a little
when she wants attention, but it’s more of a few high pitch squeals than an
These two are a bonded pair although they do not share a cage. In fact, they
cannot share a cage. Lorikeets require a highly specialized diet, much different
than other parrots. Lori eats Blessings Gourmet Lory Powder. Fava Bean eats
Zupreem Fruit Blend Medium Sized pellets. One week he ate everything except
the bananas. The next week, he only ate the bananas. It’s an adorable little quirk
and his foster mom is impressed at his distinguished palette. In addition to their
staple diets of powder and pellets, they require fresh vegetables and fruits.
If you are not familiar with Lorikeets and the special care they require, please
make sure you research the species. Not only do they require a high
maintenance diet, but they also require a LOT of attention. These birds are very
high energy and require several hours of out of cage playtime every single day.
And, it’s worth mentioning that Lori shoots liquid poop out like a kid at a pool
party with a water gun. She poops about every 15 minutes and has no qualms
about pooping on you or in your hair. She’s “poop-spastic”! If you’re a clean freak
or germaphobe, she is not the bird for you.
While all parrots require a special diet and environment, it is especially true of
Lorikeets. We encourage you to research as much as you can before you commit
to caring for this fabulous duo. Here are a few articles to get you started in your
