Blue Mountain Lory
Physical Description: The Rainbow Lorikeet is a stunning bird with many different colors. They have electric blue heads and stomachs with a striking orange and yellow chest. The rest of their bodies are green. They have bright orange beaks and eyes.
Average Lifespan: 15 – 20 years
Sexing: Sexing these birds requires a DNA test, as they are not sexually dimorphic and you cannot tell the sex just by looking at them.
Origin: New Guinea
Trainability: Rainbow Lorikeets should generally be kept singly. Pairs tend to become aggressive once they reach maturity. They are very inquisitive, high-energy birds that are always looking for something to do. They enjoy swings, ladders, and anything that requires them to exercise. Because of the amount of care required for these birds, we typically recommend them for adults only. However, we have known a few children that were given these birds and did really well with them (with adult supervision of course).
Loudness: Rainbow Lorikeets have a raspy, buzzing sort of call. They do not squawk or scream, but they do have a high-pitched call. As a general rule, their call is not bothersome. However, if you live in an area where those around you are very concerned with noise, you may want to investigate a few other parrot species before making a decision.
Pricing: Rainbow Lorikeets are moderately priced. Feel free to call our store at (954) 725-0088 for pricing and availability.
** A special note about Rainbow Lorikeets – Like all Lories, these bird require a nectar diet to maintain optimal health and longevity. They benefit greatly from fresh cut fruits and juices/nectar, but many Lories will eat Lory Powder which can be purchased at most bird stores.
Health Guarantee of Our Birds
We have the strongest bird guarantee in the country, and more importantly, we stand behind our guarantee. The guarantee is simple: We guarantee that we are selling you a perfectly healthy bird. To verify that guarantee, within five days you need to go to an Avian Vet and get any and all testing you prefer to do on your bird, at your expense. We can guide you as to the tests we suggest. If the results are not perfect but the bird can be easily treated, then we pay for all medications and all treatment. If the results are unacceptable then we either replace your bird or refund 100% of the purchase price of your bird, at our option.
Bird Guarantee only lasts for the first five days
Since we have 100% control over the bird's environment at our store, but have no control over the bird once it leaves, we can only guarantee the bird for the first five days. We guarantee that when the bird leaves the store that it has been properly socialized, and that it is 100% healthy. Your new bird has been given an excellent start here at Golden Cockatoo, and it is now your responsibility to properly care for your bird. We are always here to help you take the best care of your bird with the biggest variety and best quality bird products available in the world.
Lifetime Guarantee on our Birds
We guarantee that if during your lifetime, you are no longer able to properly care for your bird, or give your bird the attention it need's, we will accept the bird back on consignment and will find another great home for your bird. We do take a 40% commission and charge a nominal daily fee to feed and clean, but you can rest assured that you always have a place for your bird should the need arise. We are the only store in Florida to offer this guarantee as of the year 2000.
